Format: Audio CD
Sadly, it comes as no surprise that this wonderful recording hasn't been reviewed on Amazon already. All the admirers of Cannonball Adderley and Art Farmer are missing a perfect example of a small group session that combines beautiful, straight-ahead folk-tinged writing with brilliant improvisations -- plenty of solo space for the two principals. Guitarist Barry Galbraith, whom George Russell referred to as his "orchestra" and legendary bassist Milt Hinton are all Adderley and Farmer needed to accompany them on this extraordinary journey of themes, variations and swinging solos, with composer Brooks adding brief piano motifs on just one section.
How have even serious Jazz enthusiasts missed out on this? I got it when it came out on Lp in, I believe 1959, waited years for it to be released on CD, bought copies of the CD as gifts for friends, even asked a well-known Jazz radio know-it-all motor-mouth who had never heard of it to play it sometime. It was finally played as part of an Art Farmer retrospective. And still it's practically unknown.(If I'm wrong about this, I'd love to hear about it.)
The period 1956-1959 was a particularly fruitful time for Jazz, with great work coming from Miles, Monk, Gil Evans, George Russell, Bill Evans, John Lewis, Mingus and others. Perhaps this just got lost midst the riches. Buy it and you'll be in the know -- and very pleased.
