Cannonball Adderley - Jump For Joy

 Cannonball's interpretation of Duke's musical, this lp is often paired with the "with strings" lp but that seems a bit of a lazy combination to me. And it gets dissed far too much. Yeah some of the tracks seem bloated at first but they end up balancing out nicely with the more sparse cuts. All around I think is a pretty good lp and a nice tribute to Duke.

 My copy is some weird  release for Sears with this cartoon cover....

I love it. And the lp is great as well. The band is an all star bunch.
