The Cannonball Adderley Quintet and Orchestra

After I ripped this lp, I went searching for a cover image. Lo-and behold I turned up rips on two of my favorite watering holes, Orgy In Rhythm and My Jazz World.

Damn - foiled again!!

I see its been about a year and a half between posts so I guess it might be time again to offer this overlooked lp. This is ripped from my vinyl and not ganked from either of those sitesl.

This lp was too far out for me when I bought it, and even back then my small record collection was more esoteric than most. But it survived the fire 0f '78 and that alone made it an institution of my collection.

But was it a good record? I'm sure I dragged out it occasionally over the years but probably at bad times. Those times late at night fueled by er... uhmm.. lets move on shall we?

Turn clock forward 30 years...I'm amazed and happy that this still resides in the colection.

This review courtesy of Orgy In Rhythm.

Cannonball Adderley Quintet & Orchestra features three songs, each penned by different authors. Joe Zawinul wrote 'Experience In E', 'Tensity' is by David Axelrod and Lalo Schifrin was responsible for 'Dialogues For Jazz Quintet and Orchestra'.

'Experience In E' and 'Dialogues For Jazz Quintet' gravitate back and forth between Free Jazz and heavily orchestrated Bop. There’s a nice middle part in the former, and a short bass and drum part in the latter that could be looped. 'Tensity' is the best of the three as it has a strong backbeat to a Soul-Jazz melody. It’s been sampled several times as well.

Capitol ST-8-.484

Thank you also OIR for all the lp info!!
