CD review: Cannonball Adderley Quintet – In Concert Falkoner Centret, Copenhagen 1961 – 2023: Video, CD cover

World premiere, unreleased sound source.

In the spring of 1961, the gorgeous quintet led by Cannonball Adderley performed at the Falconer Centre, which had just been reborn as a modernist building, on CD for the first time.

Featuring Sam Jones, Nat Adderley, and Louis Hayes.

Before smashing the soul-jazz world with hits like Unit 7 and Jive Samba, Cannonball had a successful year-and-a-half with Miles Davis, adding to the band’s appeal.

Recorded right after. British-born pianist Victor Feldman, who is also known for composing “Seven Steps To Heaven” in a session with Miles Davis, participates and provides four songs.

1 Exodus (Victor Feldman)
2 Hi Fly (Randy Weston)
3 Our Delight (Tadd Dameron)
4 Serenity (Victor Feldman)
5 Sack O-Woe (Cannonball Adderley)
6 Lisa (Victor Feldman)
7 This Here (Bobby Timmons)
8 New Delhi (Victor Feldman)

Cannonball Adderley (alto saxophone)
Nat Adderley (trumpet)
Victor Feldman (piano, vibraphone)
