"Branch Out" and Buy This CD

"In writing first time reviews of Original Jazz Classics discs that are sadly going out-of-print, I was surprised to discover that no one had written about this CD. "Branching Out" is cornetist Nat Adderley's first session for Riverside, and his first without brother Cannonball at his side. This September 1958 session features Johnny Griffin on tenor saxophone (playing on five of seven tracks, the other two are quartet only), and the rhythm trio known as The Three Sounds -- Gene Harris on piano, Andy Simpkins on bass and Bill Dowdy on drums -- who would go on to larger success with their top selling albums for Blue Note. Overall this is a solid date, as are all of Nat's OJC discs. Unfortunately, the majority of these titles are being deleted (only "Work Song" has been reissued in the Keepnews Collection thus far), so interested parties should "branch out" soon before this tree gets chopped down."
