Cannonball Adderley Somethin' Else on LP

Remastered and Reissued As Part of the Blue Note 75th Anniversary Vinyl Reissue Campaign

It is an understatement to say that Miles Davis did not record as a sideman for just anyone. In fact, the number of times after 1950 that the trumpeter agreed to uplift another musician’s record can be counted on one hand, but Cannonball Adderley was not just “another musician.” Considered a sensation when he debuted in New York in 1955, Adderley’s brilliant technique and creative ideas were matched by his jubilant sound which was always full of joy and excitement. After leading a very enjoyable and commercially successful quintet during 1955-57, Adderley became a member of the Miles Davis Sextet, playing next to John Coltrane. 

Cannonball would have phenomenal success with his own quintet in 1959 but he was already one of the greatest jazz musicians when he recorded his lone Blue Note album, Somethin’ Else in 1958. Joined by the Hank Jones Trio, this was the lone album that Adderley and Davis ever made together as the only horns. Among the five performances are very memorable renditions of “Love For Sale” and “One For Daddy-O.” The highpoint is what could be considered the finest jazz recording ever of “Autumn Leaves.” Davis’ melancholy tone proved to be the perfect contrast to Adderley’s joyful and exuberant playing which is overflowing with both creative ideas and pure enthusiasm. The classic music on Somethin’ Else is sophisticated and earthy, melodic yet full of constant creativity. This is a true gem!
