The Cannonball Adderley Quintet in San Francisco is a 1959 album by The Cannonball Adderley Quintet. The groundbreaking album launched “soul jazz”, according to NPR, bridging “the gap between bebop and funk”. The album was recorded at The Jazz Workshop in San Francisco before an appreciative standing-room only crowd. The album broke new ground as a live recording taped in noisy club environments, creating a formula that not only the Cannonball Quintet but other jazz ensembles would follow.
Cannonball Adderley had struggled unsuccessfully with a quintet during 1955-1957, giving up for a time to play with Miles Davis’ group. In 1959 his new quintet suddenly caught on with the release of this very exciting live album, which has been reissued on CD in the Original Jazz Classics series. With cornetist Nat Adderley, pianist Bobby Timmons, bassist Sam Jones, and drummer Louis Hayes, Cannonball had the top new jazz group of 1959. Their version of Timmons’ “This Here” was a major hit, and the other numbers on this famous date (which include “Spontaneous Combustion,” “Hi-Fly,” “You Got It,” “Bohemia After Dark,” and “Straight, No Chaser”) are also quite enjoyable, showing why Adderley’s group was a pacesetter in funky soul-jazz and proving that they could outswing most of their competition. This gem is essential for all jazz collections.
