This recording, done live at the Village Vanguard in early 1962 marked a turning point in the evolution of alto saxophone master, Cannonball Adderley's band. Adderley had a very successful quintet for a couple of years with a permanent group of players. The only change in the band was the pianist, first Bobby Timmons then Barry Harris then Walter Bishop Jr. and Victor Feldman and finally Joe Zawinul, who stayed with the Adderley organization for nine years. The next step was to add another horn to the front line, and what an addition! Yusef Lateef added not only his big toned tenor but also his flute and oboe to the mix. The Adderley Sextet was born: Julian 'Cannonball' Adderley on alto, Nat Adderley on cornet, Lateef on tenor, flute and oboe, Joe Zawinul, piano, Sam Jones on bass and Louis Hayes on drums. This recording was the debut of this group and Adderley's first live recording in New York and it cooks from bar one!
