4.0 out of 5 stars Cannonball Blasts! July 30, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Capitol Records' recent spate of Cannonball Adderley reissues is impressively augmented by this collection, recorded in March and July of 1967. With "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy" high on the pop charts, Cannonball took his sizzling quintet - with little brother Nat on cornet, Joe Zawinul on keyboards, Victor Gaskin on bass and Roy McCurdy at the skins - into Capitol's Los Angeles studios for another "live" set blending blues, funk and pop elements into the more classicist jazz of which they'd long since become acknowledged masters. The results are impressive indeed, with the Adderleys blowing at peak strength (especially on "I'm On My Way" and "The Other Side") while Zawinul - heard here on both acoustic and electric piano - dominates the title track and an extended rendition of "The Girl Next Door." One need only hear a single Cannonball Adderley album from this era to understand why he and his band commanded such respect from both critics and fans; here's hoping Capitol will see fit to keep them coming nevertheless.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Quintet at it's peak January 12, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Recorded live in the Capital studios with a lively audience in 1967, this disc features Cannonball in fine fine form with superb musicians surrounding him. Of particular note is the contribution by his brother Nat Adderly on cornet and Joe Zawinul on accoustic and electric piano. This is high energy jazz with a funky swinging feel. "Mini Mama" is a uptempo burner than sears a vicious groove like many other tracks. There is a lot of talk in the introductions of the songs that are usually informative. Take for example, the introduction to the title track, "Why Am I Treated So Bad" where Cannoball informs us that it was written by Robuck Staples, the leader and patriarch of the Staple Singers. It is a groovy "soft," funky number that gets you swaying to the rhythm. It is a rather catching and infectious tune that still sounds good after all these years. A song written by Nat Adderly is entitled "The Other Side " and written to "appease the sentiments of the extraordinary hippie." It is a hard driving number that allows for nice improvisation by the band; each takes a cue for a solo to extend the interplay. "The Girl Next Door" features a muted horn for that cool jazz swing reminiscent of Miles with nice sax work by Cannonball. An underrated player that was a giant behind the horn, Cannonball Adderly created melodic jazz that was funky and smooth at once. There is plenty of bang for the buck as the CD is one hour long. Recommended as a nice addition to any jazz collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Feel Strongly About This May 20, 2012
By ems97
Format:Audio CD
Cannonball Adderley starts to introduce the song "Why Am I Treated So Bad" with the words: "Y'know ladies and gentlemen, it's time for us to present something to you that we feel strongly about." Cannonball continues to talk as the band starts to play. The audience claps and yells excitedly. Then the horns come in with their amazing smooth bluesy melody. Joe Zawinul hits some funky notes on the electric piano. Each time the band plays the melody, Joe comes in at the end with a little zinger note on the electric piano, timed to be less than half a second after the horns play the note. The results are incredibly funky. Then it's time for Joe's electric piano solo, which takes up almost half of the song's time. The audience yells at him to "work" and he does. Every line is so funky, some making me want to dance, some even making me convulse in joy. Whenever these moments come, the audience erupts. Then it's time for a few more cycles through the comforting melody. This is a song that I listen to when I am happy, or when I need to be made happier. Whenever those introductory words come through my speakers, I am thankful that Cannonball and his band felt so strongly about this music.
