This is another great album that could also be categorized as a “Sleeper” and as my immediate previous post. The name of this album I will featuring also is Cannonball Adderley Quintet Plus and came out in 1961. It is borderline Hard Bop and Avant-Garde, the best of both worlds. I think the Jazz Con Class listeners here will enjoy quite a bit. Again, checkout the Schedule link to see when it will be playing and tune in. I will leave the playlist out there for a week or so and then place it in the rotation, probably in the G4 Playlist.

More on the Album:

For this CD reissue of a Riverside date, altoist Cannonball Adderley’s 1961 Quintet (which includes cornetist Nat Adderley, pianist Victor Feldman, bassist Sam Jones and drummer Louis Hayes) is joined by guest pianist Wynton Kelly on five of the eight selections, during which Feldman switches quite effectively to vibes. The music falls between funky soul-jazz and hard bop, and each of the performances (particularly “Star Eyes” and “Well You Needn’t”) is enjoyable. The CD adds a new alternate take of “Lisa” and the previously unissued “O.P.” to the original program…..Learn More

"Jazz Con Class Radio plays the finest in jazz 24 hours a day. Here you can listen to the best in jazz, all the giants from Duke Elliington and Charlie Parker to Miles Davis and Herbie Hancock as well as the infinite number of notable contributors in between. Jazz Con Class Radio plays the whole spectrum of jazz. Jazz that's melodic, but never boring as well as edgy, but not too far out. Jazz Con Class Radio presents all the best this great American music form has to offer. Online. 24 hours a day. You'll find it all on Jazz Con Class Radio."

"I appreciate Jazz Con Class Radio because I love bop, hard bop, and related jazz forms. I especially appreciate Jazz Con Class because of the great range of musicians and cuts that are played. Although I like to hear Miles Davis play So What and John Coltrane play My Favorite Things, familiar cuts like these are heard too often on other jazz stations. Unlike other jazz stations, Jazz Con Class Radio frequently surprises me with great music that is not so familiar to me. I love it. And I also love the absence of commercial interruptions.

Although I am not a musician or an authority on music, I teach a Bop seminar for first-year students at the University of California at Davis. In addition to hearing the music, the students learn about the musicians and urban culture in the 40s, 50s, and 60s. I often play Jazz Con Class Radio at the start and end of class meetings. The music is a wonderful gift. The station is also a wonderful gift."
