Cannonball Adderley and John Coltrane ‎– Cannonball & Coltrane

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


“This LP (whose contents have been reissued many times) features the Miles Davis Sextet of 1959 without the leader. Altoist Cannonball Adderley and tenor saxophonist John Coltrane really push each other on these six selections, with this version of “Limehouse Blues” really burning. Coltrane’s very serious sound is a striking contrast to the jubilant Adderley alto; the latter is showcased on “Stars Fell on Alabama.” With pianist Wynton Kelly, bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Jimmy Cobb playing up to their usual level, this gem is highly recommended.” – Scott Yanow/AllMusic.
