Them Dirty Blues
Notes: "Cannonball" Adderley has played with the giants of jazz and in combos of his own selection. And each outing is stellar. Along with the talented horn of Nat on these cuts he manages to continue to produce music of a consistantly high caliber. These session were held in February and March of 1960 and captured work that helps to remind us that the blues, particularly those dirty blues, are the bedrock upon which jazz was built. Each player holds his own and brings something to the table with him. Sam Jones has provided the bottom end for such luminaries as Theolonious Monk and Dizzy Gillespie. Pianist Bobby Timmons left during the sessions to return to Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers and was replaced with local Detroit player Barry Harris. The cover photos capture a quiet, interested subject. A very nice record for your Sunday afternoon jazz fix.
