Cannonball Adderley was just too varied and restless a performer for a single-disc compilation to truly earn the title THE DEFINITIVE CANNONBALL ADDERLEY, but this 2002 collection does a better job than any previous one-disc anthology. Moving in chronological order, the 10-track set begins with Adderley's post-bop period, when the saxophonist had just struck out on his own as a leader after working with the likes of John Coltrane and Miles Davis, both of whom make guest appearances. By the time of 1960's "Sack O' Woe," however, Adderley's trademark soul-jazz sound is nearing full development, and the rest of the disc is a neatly concise primer of the rise and fall of that particular jazz sub-genre, highlighted by a 1962 live take on Adderley fave "The Jive Samba" and the definitive version of Joe Zawinul's "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy." For the casual fan, THE DEFINITIVE CANNONBALL ADDERLEY is an excellent starting point.
Artist Overview
Cannonball Adderley's blues-soaked tone and swinging delivery on alto sax stood out immediately when he arrived in New York in 1955. He joined the Miles Davis Quintet a few years later and appeared on the seminal KIND OF BLUE album. While many were searching for new forms during the '60s, Adderley, in a quintet with his brother Nat, stuck wholeheartedly to a gospel-tinged soul-blues style. The group's hits, such as 1967's "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy," pushed jazz closer to rock without compromising the music's spirit, a trend Adderley would carry on through the fusion-drenched '70s.
