Product description

Product Description

Adderley achieved immortality in the Miles Davis Quintet with Kind of Blue and his Something Else is possibly the best of the Blue Note albums. That was the late 1950s. Ten years later Adderley was touring Europe with his own quintet and gave a performance at Stuttgarts Liederhalle. Even during the sound check the musicians must have sensed the concert halls unique atmosphere; that evening would go down as a landmark performance. From soul jazz and blues (Sweet Emma, Why Am I Treated So Bad), to free-form contemporariness (Somewhere) and lollipops infused with canny commerciality (Work Song, Walk Tall), the listener is treated here to the sublime art of the quintet even at a time when that classic bebop formation was already on the wane. And then there is Zawinul! If truth be told, it was his concert. A jet-black figure at the keyboard (Oh Babe), swinging and quirky on the piano (Rumpelstiltskin, The Painted Desert). A kobold stoking the flames as if trying to shed the state of hypnosis that had gripped him a month earlier while recording In A Silent Way. Something stopped to make way for the new. Things Are Getting Better. The following year saw the Adderley Brothers big band collages and world music. Zawinul formed Weather Report and stormed to worldwide celebrity. But the concert of March 1969 remains: the legacy of a unique quintet. Soulful and swinging, a timeless classic even today.

Here we have a concert recording (apparently edited to fit one CD) from 1969. The "quintet" has moved on since the famous recordings ten years earlier. Cannonball and his brother Nat still play with fiery competence, but this quintet includes Joe Zawinul (described on the sleeve as a jet-black kobold) who certainly gives the quintet a different feel to the days when Victor Feldman or Bobby Timmons occupied the piano chair. Of course Zawinul had played with Adderley many times since 1961.The quintet, which had recorded together previously, is completed by Victor Gaskin and Roy McCurdy.

The quality of the recording is good and as usual, in concert, Adderley introduces the tunes. The choice of programme is interesting and features old friends such as "Work Song" together with three tunes from Zawinul, a couple more from brother Nat, Bernstein's "Somewhere" from "West Side Story" , one from Gillespie, and an adsorbing version of Roebuck Staples emotive "Why Am I Treated So Bad?". Altogether a long, adsorbing and entertaining concert programme.

All five musicians make solo contributions and are on top form. An excellent CD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cannonball Adderley- Legends Live 12 Jan. 2014
By Lil Rook - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The music on this CD comes from a tour of Europe in 1969 by the Cannonball Adderley quintet. There are other CD's of unreleased music from a tour all over the continent during that year. The music from this CD was during a concert in Germany. Many of the tunes were on albums recorded from that time such as In Person and 74 Miles Away. However I think this is the first time Adderley was recorded performing the Dizzy Gillespie classic "Blue 'n' Boogie" which is performed at an incredibly fast pace and is one of the many highlights on this CD. Another highlight is the tune "Painted Desert". It is another classic Joe Zawinul blues number and is arguably the best song overall. The Adderley quintet also covers the Roebuck Staples track "Why Am I Treated So Bad" and Joe Zawinul is the sole soloist as he serenades the audience with his electric keyboard. I find the version from the 1967 album to be better but this version is still very good. Other tracks I enjoyed were "Rumpelstiltskin", "Sweet Emma", and "Somewhere". All of which were originally on Cannoball's 1968 album titled "In Person". Unfortunately that album has never been released on CD in the US so this CD is the only chance to hear these tunes. The sound quality on this release is fantastic and it is highly recommended for anybody who is a fan of Cannonball Adderley.

5.0 out of 5 stars Cannonball Adderley in Europe 1969 5 Jun. 2012
By C. Stewart - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This CD is from Cannonball's 1969 European tour - a series of 7 concerts and one lengthy studio session. This particular concert recording was produced by Dieter Zimmerle at the Mozartsaal Konserthaus in Stuttgart, Germany recorded March 20, 1969. The original recording included 12 tunes and was broadcast three days later on March 23. Other parts were reused for subsequent radio broadcasts. It has never been available commercially before.

Probably for reasons of space, "Experience in E" and "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy" are omitted on this CD. The remaining nine tunes are included just as recorded with one exception. On Rumplestiltskin, the piano solo is edited shorter - presumably to make the tune to fit on the CD. The original is 12:19, but here it is 9:29. None the less, this is a gem from the 1969 European tour and I'm so happy it is now available in this format.

There are still two other concerts from this tour that remain hidden. One is the ORF TV & Radio recording from Vienna on March 16 and the second is RSR recording from Montreux, Switzerland on March 28. Let's hope the owners of these recordings do as Jazzhaus did and release these remaining two concerts soon.

A "must have" CD for any Cannonball Adderley or Joe Zawinul fan.
