Cannonball Adderley - Bordeaux (1969) (mp3, 256kbps)

When you compare this pristine FM bootleg to my earlier Cannonball post, it's hard to believe that the music was all performed in the same year! That was the genius of this underrated musician and band leader. On this recording, the same five piece band sounds so much more kie the Cannonball Adderley who appeared on the landmark Miles Davis record 'Kind Of Blue', rather than the smoldering boogie-woogie of The Country Preacher. Zawinul does evetually make his way to the Fender Rhodes, but the mood has already been set.

Enjoy this more 'classic' sounding jazz from a great innovator who, even at the moment he played this concert, stood at the crossroads of what had been jazz and what jazz would become.
