  (Item #: adderafric_1805_1808) 

Our Price: $169.99

  • This copy of Cannonball's crazy-fun 1961 album offers outstanding Double Plus (A++) sound or better
  • ALIVE with musical energy, there's also plenty of space for the players to occupy, a quality vital to this big group's big sound
  • "The surging, compelling, thoroughly earthy sound of this orchestra, led by CANNONBALL ADDERLEY and including as impressive a roster of jazz stars as has ever been assembled, has already been responsible for a major breakthrough on the musical front... In March of 1961, the issuance on a 45-rpm single record of the rip-snorting Adderley performance of African Waltz caused a swift and totally unlooked-for upheaval. Quickly and enthusiastically accepted by a wide public, it leaped almost overnight into the bestseller category."
