This oft recorded band was one of the best in Modern Jazz history. Led by the great alto saxophonist Julian "Cannonball" Adderley, it featured his brother Nat on cornet plus the wonderfully versatile Yusef Lateef on tenor saxophone, flute and oboe on the front line plus the stellar rhythm section of Joe Zawinul on piano, Sam Jones on bass and Louis Hayes on drums. This band, even on an "off" night could sound so good that no one would ever know it but when inspiration struck this band was "out of sight"!. This set was recorded before a huge audience of 35 to 40 thousand people and the band was on fire! I think you'll agree when you hear this set recorded at The International Jazz Festival at Comblain-La-Tour , Belgium on August 5, 1962. A set to remember!
