Cannonball Takes Charge
Format: MP3 Download|Change

on 23 August 2013
Cannonball Adderley is one of the best Alto sax players you could ever hear, he has a free flowing style with a wonderful tone, I have not heard a bad or even slightly poor album of theirs, I have seven C.D.`s and five vinyl albums .

TOP 100 REVIEWERon 21 November 2013
This excellent album was recorded in New York on April 23/27 & May 12, 1959 with Cannonball Adderley(alto sax); Wynton Kelly(piano); Paul Chambers or Percy Heath(bass) & Jimmy Cobb or Albert 'Tootie' Heath(drums).
Adderley is in exuberant form on 7 memorable tracks(plus 2 alternative takes) including 6 standards and the altoist's original, 'Barefoot Sunday Blues'. Highlights include a scintillating version of 'I Remember You', the lyrical 'Poor Butterfly' & the ballad 'I Guess I'll Hang My Tears Out To Dry'.
'Cannonball Takes Charge' is an ideal introduction to Adderley's often underrated alto saxophone playing.

BTW ~ This album, less the 2 alternative takes, has been reissued(2010) along with 'Quintet in Chicago' featuring John Coltrane on POLL WINNERS RECORDS PWR 27205.
