Contrary to the description below I feel the Jazz Con Class Radio listeners will enjoy this album feature very much. There is plenty of depth and soul in this 1962 album and where the Adderly brothers traveled to New Orleans to record with three well known artists from the area where it all started. Ellis Marsalis rocks on the piano, he’s the father and part of the very popular New Orleans based musical clan (Wynton, Branford, Delfeayo and Jason). Tenor Nat Perrilliat is sharp and drummer James Black plays in harmony with the great bass player Sam Jones, who the Adderly’s brought along to make it easy on everybody. We all know very well that anything and everything Cannonball and Nat have to do with is pure gold, there are no exceptions! Great stuff, nobody will be short changed here but then again, you be the judge. “In the Bag” will be featured for a week or so, check the schedule link for play times. ENJOY!
