This Sunday Concert is dedicated to a little gem I found on YouTube not long ago.
From 1957, here is the first modern pop star, the King of the cool, the jazz voice made from honey and wine. This is Frank Sinatra in concert live in Seattle.
There is nothing new I can say about Ol´Blue Eyes, so I will just invite you to get comfortable, close your eyes, imagine you are sitting there waiting for the introduction and simply enjoy one of the best at work, live!
Then you have come to the right place, because this Sunday Concert is dedicated to Cannonball Adderley and his famous album from 1958, “Somethin´ Else”.
Cannonball Adderley gave up his own band in 1957 on the hope, and later realization, that he was going to be a part of Jazz history when Miles Davis asked him to become sideman in Davis’ epic ensemble with John Coltrane, and eventually Bill Evans.
The result? Some “forgettable” works like Milestones and Kind of Blue..
Miles Davis returned the favor and in March of 1958, he appeared on Adderley´s Blue Note Album “Somethin´ Else”, appearing as his sideman in an all star quintet session date.
The result is a cool, sometimes laid-back, sometimes rhythmic, sometimes groovy and boppish, but all together, a glorious album that more than 50 years later we can enjoy on a slow Sunday.
So here it is, “Somethin´Else” with the Cannonball Adderley Quintet featuring Miles Davis.
