Good Jazz from a Good Artist
David Marshall | 06/16/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"Cannonball Adderley is celebrated very nicely on "Verve Jazz Masters" 31. Many of the songs are standards, such as "You'd be so Nice to Come Home To" and "The Song is You". Adderley has been called "The New Bird" for his Charlie Parker-esque sound on the alto. This is a beautiful album with beautiful sidemen. Cannonball is backed so nicely on many of the tracks by his trumpeter brother, Nat. One of the high points of this album is his unique cover of Monk's "Straight, no Chaser". Anyone who has ever wondered about Cannonball will learn a lot from this "introductory" album. The purpose of the Verve Jazz Masters albums is to present an introduction to the work of whoever they are recording. They have recorded Adderley very nicely, and this is an album for any of Cannonball's fans, or any fan of great jazz music."
Cannonball at his best

"There's not a lot to say about this collection. I doubt Verve could have put together a more representative collection of Mr. Adderley's work. Despite the glaring ommitment of Work Song, this is absolutely critical listening for any serious or budding jazz fan."
Alto Inspiration

"Classic hard bop form a wellspring of alto inpiration. Along with Coltrane, Rollins and Miles, Adderley is a perfoming giant. This is a great all around sample of his work. His work with Miles on 'Something Else' is one of the must haves in jazz."
