Cannonball Adderley: Dis Here (CD: Proper, 4 CDs)Cannonball Adderley: Dis Here (CD: Proper, 4 CDs)
Cannonball Adderley’s alto sax had that special immediacy. His penchant for melody, mastery of the blues, and expert use of the rhythm section brought him a large following, the likes of which straight jazz would never enjoy again. This 57 track set follows Cannonball’s story from 1955 through to 1959 where he is joined by the likes of Miles Davis, Art Blakey, Kenny Clarke, Bill Evans and Milt Jackson. Also included is a 24 page book with the Cannonball Adderley story, discography and rare photos. (Proper Records)

Cannonball Adderley: Things Are Getting Better (CD: Riverside)Cannonball Adderley: Things Are Getting Better (CD: Riverside)
At its best, the loose-limbed "blowing" date must be recognized as an important element in the jazz pattern. This album is a near-perfect illustration: Cannonball and Bags rank among the most imaginative and blues-rooted improvisers of all times; Art Blakey, Percy Heath, and Wynton Kelly form a flawless rhythm section; all five are bonded together by a deep musical and personal compatibility. The combination elevates the straight-ahead jazz session to an art form. (Fantasy, Inc.)

Cannonball Adderley Quintet: Cannonball's Sharpshooters (CD: American Jazz Classics)Cannonball Adderley Quintet: Cannonball's Sharpshooters (CD: American Jazz Classics)

In addition to the seven tracks from the original album, the current CD also includes a long version of “Fuller Bop Man” originally issued as part of an LP anthology of various artists and a reading of “I’ll Remember April” first included on the album Cannonball Enroute but recorded during the Sharpshooters sessions. Also added are all of the tracks featuring Cannonball from an album by Afro-Cuban star Machito titled Kenya. (Harmonia Mundi)

Cannonball Adderley with Bill Evans: Know What I Mean? (CD: Essential Jazz Classics)
The complete original 1961 album ‘Know What I Mean?’ (originally on Riverside), which was Cannonball Adderley’s third and final collaboration with Bill Evans outside of their work with the Miles Davis Sextet. The album also marks the pianist and saxophonist’s only recording together in a quartet format. Added as a bonus to this spectacular session are Bill Evans’ solo and trio versions of “Waltz for Debby” and “Elsa”, as well as the only two complete tracks by Adderley’s regular group recorded on the Jazz Casual TV show during the same period as the main album.

• Personnel : Cannonball Adderley, alto sax; Bill Evans, piano; Percy Heath, bass; Connie Kay, drums. On bonus tracks: Bill Evans, Scott LaFaro & Paul Motian; and Cannonball Adderley, Nat Adderley, Joe Zawinul, Sam Jones, Louis Hayes. (Discovery Records)

Cannonball Adderley: Takes Charge (CD: Capitol)
This 1959 album, originally issued on Riverside, is a rare treat in Adderley's vast output. It is a relaxed studio quartet album featuring the great pianist Wynton Kelly. Both of these giants were members of Miles Davis's sextet at the time. Paul Chambers and Jimmy Cobb, also members of Miles's group, are on the first four tunes, while Percy and Tootie Heath are on the balance of the album. While the blues is well represented, Cannonball took this opportunity to delve into some great standards that show off his incredible grasp of Charlie Parker's style. Cannonball Takes Charge is mastered in 24-bit from the original tapes and includes two alternate takes. (Blue Note Records)

Cannonball Adderley Quintet: In Chicago (CD: Verve)Cannonball Adderley Quintet: In Chicago (CD: Verve)
The personnel on this 1959 session is the Mile Davis Sextet without Miles Davis, but it doesn't sound like anything is missing. The music is an expression of the dynamic personalities of Davis's two saxophonists: the buoyant and bluesy Cannonball Adderley, who is credited as the leader, and the intense and searching John Coltrane, whose contributions are every bit as prominent as Adderley's. Quintet in Chicago captures both musicians when the were on the verge of establishing themselves as bandleaders and as strong individual voices. (Verve Music Group)

Cannonball Adderley: Somethin' Else (CD: Blue Note RVG)
Adderley's solitary Blue Note as leader afforded him the luxury of Miles Davis as a sideman, though the 'Cannonball' is really leader in name only for this is very much a Davis disc. And a magical one it is too, capturing the trumpeter in particularly fine form on two well known standards, 'Autumn Leaves' and 'Love For Sale'. Blakey on drums, so often a powerhouse behind the horns, plays with great subtlety and invention, equally so pianist Hank Jones, whose soft touch on the keys is a delight throughout. Adderley, still under the influence of Bird, plays as many notes as Davis leaves out but his soulful craft on the alto horn shines through on this, one of his most engaging recordings.

Cannonball Adderley: Somethin' Else (CD: Phoenix Jazz)
This release contains the complete, classic Blue Note album "Somethin' Else" in which Cannonball - by then a member of the Miles Davis Sextet - was joined by his boss, Hank Jones, Sam Jones and the great Art Blakey. All five musicians shine on this album, which is one of the most celebrated in the history of jazz.

As a bonus is added Adderley's 1957 Mercury classic album "Sophisticated Swing" which appears here complete with the sole exception of a short trio version of 'Stella by Starlight' (played only by the rhythm section, without Cannonball or Nat), which could not be included due to time limitations.

The booklet includes the original liner notes for both albums, plus the 1958 Down Beat review for Somethin' Else by Dom Cerulli and the complete 1959 Cannonball Adderley blindfold test by Leonard Feather, which also appeared on Down Beat magazine.

Personnel : Cannonball Adderley (as), Miles Davis (tp), Nat Adderley (cnt), Hank Jones, Junior Mance (p), Sam Jones (b), Art Blakey and Jimmy Cobb (d) - Recorded at Rudy Van Gelder Studio, in Hackensack, New Jersey, on March 9, 1958 - and New York, February 6-11, 1957.

Nat Adderley: Work Song (CD: Riverside Keepnews Collection)
Nat Adderley led a double creative life at Riverside: featured on the highly successful working-group albums led by his brother Cannonball, and also devising several intriguingly different projects under his own name. Very possibly the most interesting was Work Song, which took its title from one of Nat's most widely known soulful compositions, and took its instrumentation from the younger Adderley's fertile imagination. Cornet, cello, and guitar make up a front line that will probably never be duplicated. The guitarist was his friend Wes Montgomery, just emerging towards jazz stardom; the cellist was the longtime bassist of Cannonball's band, Sam Jones. (Fantasy, Inc.)
