Overview

Paris Jazz Concert 1969

The Cannonball Adderley Quintet was in good form during this 1969 concert in Paris. They start off with keyboardist Joe Zawinul's hard bop "Rumplestiltskin," which is inexplicably still comically mislabeled "Rufus Still Skinned" as it was on its original release in Europe. "La Manha de Carnaval," the widely recognized theme from the film Black Orpheus, features the potent blend of the leader's alto sax with brother Nat Adderley's cornet. "Work Song" remained one of the quintet's most requested numbers, and this driving gospel flavored version is a highlight of this release. "Experience in E - The Allegro Movement" is a somewhat meandering piece; it was also performed prior to this concert by the quintet with the Toronto Symphony; this William Fischer work is based on a composition by Zawinul. "The Blooz," credited jointly to Zawinul and Nat Adderley, is a throwaway blues with a forgettable vocal by Adderley. "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy," another staple of the quintet, is used to close the concert. Bassist Victor Gaskin and drummer Roy McCurdy round out the group.
