CANNONBALL ADDERLEY Blue Note 46338-2 Somethin' Else ● CD $13.98
Recorded on March 9, 1958 and notable for the appearance of Miles Davis in the rare role of sideman (& one of the few albums without brother Nat.) Incredible recording with the two stellar frontmen backed by Hank Jones (p), Sam Jones (b), & Art Blakey (d). Includes the Miles-penned title track, Nat Adderley's One For Daddy-O, and 3 standards - Autumn Leaves, Love For Sale & Dancin' In The Dark.

CANNONBALL ADDERLEY Capitol 95482 The Best Of The Capitol Years ● CD $15.98
8 sixties slices from the Riverside and Capitol labels, when Cannonball's groups had forged a dynamic and soulful mainstream sound. Opening with a high energy version of his classic Work Song, the Adderley brothers (that's Nat on cornet) enlist Yusef Lateef or Charles Lloyd on tenors, pianist Joe Zawinul and a handful of funky rhythm players on their direct and uncluttered arrangements of Jive Samba/ Fiddler On The Roof/ Mercy Mercy Mercy, Pops Staples' bluesy Why Am I Treated So Bad and more. The majority of these are recorded either in concert or a festive live studio setting, adding to the good-time ambience. Make no mistake - this is jazz with a feeling! Highly recommended. (MB)

CANNONBALL ADDERLEY Verve 528 408-2 Sophisticated Swing : The EmArcy Small Group Sessions ● CD $25.98
2 Discs, 36 Tracks, 2 hours, 39 min, essential. An unbelievable find! The complete recordings of the first Cannonball Adderley quintet and a Nat Adderley-led session as well. Four LP's on 2 CD's so there's also lots of bang for your buck. Consists of the albums "To the Ivy League from Nat", "Sophisticated Swing", "Cannonball Enroute", and "Sharp Shooters". This set even includes the long version of Fuller Bop Man, found only on the Japanese LP "Mercury 40th anniversary V.S.O.P. Album". I just can't say enough about this stuff: incredible post-bop recorded between 1956-1958. Cannonball (alto) and Nat (coronet) are joined by Junior Mance (piano), Sam Jones and Al McKibbon (bass) and Jimmy Cobb (drums). Disc 1 has some of the great early Cannonball hits: Bimini/ Hoppin' John/ The Fatman (a wonderful blues)/ Cobbwebb/ A Foggy Day/ Jeannie; Disc 2 highlights include: Pooky/ Spring is Here/ That Funky Train/ Our Delight (beautiful ballad playing: Check out Cannonball!)/ What's New/ Stay On It. Spectacular solos and arrangements throughout. Excellent liner notes by Bob Blumenthal. A must have. (PL)

CANNONBALL ADDERLEY QUINTET Capitol 93560-2 Cannonball In Japan ● CD $13.98
Rather pro forma live set comprised of six cuts recorded at Sankei Hall, Tokyo, Japan in August 1966. This version of the band featured Cannonball on alto sax (he produced the record as well), brother Nat (cornet), Joe Zawinul (piano), Victor Gaskin (bass) and Roy McCurdy (drums). Funky postbop meets r&b. The result: soul-tinged versions of Work Song/ Mercy, Mercy, Mercy and This Here. (PL)

THE CANNONBALL ADDERLEY QUINTET Pablo 5303-2 Paris, 1960 ● CD $16.98
7 tracks, 57 mins, high;y recommended This is the beginnings of Norman Granz opening up his vaults & releasing for the 1st time material he recorded on his numerous JATP (Jazz At the Philharmonic) tours.

The tunes, played with faster & with more energy than the studio versions, include 2 of Cannon's classics, Work Song & Dis Here, plus Blue Daniel/ Jeannine/The Chant/ Bohemia After Dark, with most tunes in the 7 - 10 minute mark giving everyone a chance to stretch out.

OSCAR ALEMAN Acoustic Disc 29 Swing Guitar Masterpieces, 1938-1957 ● CD $21.98
At last, a domestic release of this great Argentinian jazz guitarist and it's a two CD set to boot with 52 tracks.

OSCAR ALEMAN Fremeaux & Associates 020 Argentina's Versatile Guitar Genius, 1928-1943 ● CD $15.98
18 tracks, 51 mins, highly recommended. This is the first CD release of this brilliant Argentinian guitarist. He started playing in the early 20s and performed and recorded from the mid 20s through the early 70s. He was a truly amazing musician being equally comfortable on a range of stringed instruments including guitar, Brazillian four stringed cavaquinho, Hawaiian guitar, etc and his repertoire included jazz, bolero, fox-trots, tango and more! He settled in Paris in the 30s where he was considered the only rival to the great Django Reinhardt who was Aleman's good friend. This CD presents the whole spectrum of Aleman's talents beinnging with three 1928 duets with G. Bueno Lobo where Lobo or Aleman play Hawaiian guitar, on Pagina Gris they are joined by violinist E. Vardaro. From his Paris tenure there are three cuts where he accompanies Spanish vocalist Lina D'Acosta on three folklore songs, a couple cuts where he sits in on dobro with Bill Coleman's Orchestra and Danny Polo's Swing Stars. He returned to Argentina in the early 40s where he formed a small group Quinteto De Swing and there are 5 varied tracks from this period. There's not a lot of Aleman's hot jazz guitar on this collection though it does present an excellent overview of his career and, hopefully, there is more on the way. Sound is excellent and there are informative notes and discographical information. (FS)
