This a great Cannonball album which was recorded “Live” in New York City’s Village Vanguard on January 12th and 14th of the year 1962. The official name of the album is The Cannonball Adderley Sextet in New York.”  I’m placing the complete album, including the introductions, which the listeners here on Jazz Con Class will find very interesting. But I don’t need to go any further, Cannonball will explain it to you himself. Check the schedule link for play times. This album will be featured for about two weeks like I always do and then will be placed on the G4 Playlist and where most of the “Live” recorded songs can be heard, great stuff, ENJOY!

About the Album:

In this volume from Concord’s Keepnews Collection, the only real addition to this excellent Cannonball Adderley Sextet live date from the Village Vanguard is a new set of reminiscences from producer Orrin Keepnews himself. As always, Keepnews is candid, sometimes self-depreciating but not reluctant to pat himself on the back, uniquely insightful, and compulsively readable. Anytime you have as good a writer as he is providing first-hand source material, give him all the space he wants. This was the recording debut of the Adderley Sextet, with Cannonball waxing eloquently and swingingly on alto, brother Nat charging ahead on cornet, and the versatile Yusef Lateef (who had joined the band only three weeks earlier) adding a bit of an edge on tenor, flute, and unusually for a jazz wind player, oboe on the odd, dirge-like “Syn-Anthesia.” There is plenty of talk from Cannonball as well, and once again, we miss his genial, witty authority as a communicator…….Learn More

"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."

"Jazz Con Class is a wonderful discovery. I never have to change it because each tune is selected so carefully. It lifts my spirits and at the same time teaches me about a side of music I otherwise wouldn't have exposure to. This is honest, real music and I'm glad to have the chance to listen to it."
