2018 Japanese CD reissue.
Cannonball Adderley's Mercury albums find the youthful altoist trying to unsuccessfully keep his quintet with brother Nat together. Despite the powerful bop-oriented music they consistently recorded, the band would break up in a year, only to regroup with great success in 1959. This set is highlighted by romps on "A Foggy Day," "I'll Remember April" and "The Way You Look Tonight" with fine solos contributed by the two Adderleys and pianist Junior Mance.
