Hard-swinging and soulful modern jazz from Cannonball Adderley's Quintet in 1960.
on 4 July 2016
This excellent quintet album by the alto saxophonist Cannonball Adderley(1928-75) was recorded live at The Lighthouse, Hermosa Beach, California on October 16, 1960.
Apart from Cannonball on alto the quintet included Nat Adderley(cornet) and a stellar rhythm section of Victor Feldman(piano); Sam Jones(bass) & Louis Hayes(drums).
This empathetic group perform seven memorable compositions and highlights are Cannonball's 'Sack O' Woe', Victor feldman's 'Azule Serape' & Tadd Dameron's 'Our Delight'.
'At The Lighthouse' is one of Cannonball Adderley's finest live albums and should be heard by anyone who appreciates soulful and hard-swinging modern jazz.
