Cannonball Adderley - The Uptown

Another great swingin' Cannonball Adderley, Riverside Records 45 from 1961. The session players were Nat Adderley, Ernie Royal, Clark Terry, Nick Travis (tp) Jimmy Cleveland, Melba Liston (tb) Paul Faulise (btb) Bob Brookmeyer (vtb) Don Butterfield (tu) Cannonball Adderley (as) George Dorsey (as, fl) Oliver Nelson (ts, fl) Jerome Richardson (ts, fl, picc) Arthur Clarke (bars) Wynton Kelly (p) Sam Jones (b) Charlie Persip (d) Ray Barretto (cga) Ernie Wilkins (arr)

Adderley was one of the first jazz artists that I took a liking to, due in part by dad playing his records around the house.
"Sack O' Woe" was one of his favorites and one of the songs I played for him during the final hours of his life.
