I have already worn deep groves in this classic and planning on going deeper until I wear it out
Some critics accuse Cannonball of "selling out" and "commercializing" his music, and yeah, you can hear the influence of popular music here. But there's absolutely no compromise in the integrity of the music, and Cannonball's playing is actually more edgy and adventurous than on his earlier bebop recordings. Listen to "Games", a fairly innocuous soul jazz tune, where Cannonball plays some fairly avant-garde stuff.
The best material on here is on "Sticks" (one of Cannonball's best tunes) and "Sack'o'Woe". The latter is an interesting contrast to the classic 1960 version with Victor Feldman; this one has less of the driving swing rhythm but is much, much funkier. "Fun" is relatively adventurous post-bop and "Hippodelphia" is one of Zawinul's best straight-ahead tunes.
If you like this one, I would also check out "Money in the Pocket" and "Why Am I Treated So Bad".
