In San Francisco

An album by Cannonball Adderley

For Nat

  • Jan 13, 2000
Sparked by the recent death of Nat Adderley I decided to come here and review this album. I've owned it since before Amazon.com even existed (meaning I didn't buy it here, sorry Amazon!) but in some little way I wanted to pay a tribute to Nat.

I like all sorts of jazz but I am well aware that many people don't, and that many people think jazz is 4 or 5 guys all playing different songs at the same time. For those of you who have heard maybe only a random Albert Ayler, Pharoah Sanders, or Peter Brotzmann cd and from that you decided that you "hate jazz" then a cd such as this one is what I would suggest for you. This cd is danceable, grooveable, inspired, and just plain fun!

SPONTANEOUS COMBUSTION is sure to put a twinkle in your eye just by how much fun it sounds like all the musicians are having. Evidently I have slipped behind... I had never looked for this on cd (yet) and it was just now that I saw that a bonus STRAIGHT, NO CHASER has been added to the cd edition. Now there's another reason to buy this cd! STRAIGHT is a fantastic Thelonious Monk tune, and while I have not heard the version on this cd I can still say that it's one of my very favorite jazz tunes, and I have no doubt that the band gave it a more than worthy workout on this cd's version.

What did you think of this review?
