Two saxophone gods join together before creating future masterpieces on their own!

Instead of the usual trumpet of Nat Adderley in the front line on this classic 1959 album, it's the tenor saxophone of John Coltrane on the left, and Cannonball Adderley's alto sax on the right. It's a studio recording with Wynton Kelly leading the Miles Davis rhythm section. They join together seamlessly. With Bill Evans substituting for Wynton Kelly on most tracks, these musicians would record the classic album Kind of Blue (1959), with regular employer trumpeter Miles Davis, shortly after this session. "Altoist Cannonball Adderley and tenor saxophonist John Coltrane really push each other on these six selections... Coltrane's very serious sound is a striking contrast to the jubilant Adderley alto... With pianist Wynton Kelly, bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Jimmy Cobb playing up to their usual level, this gem is highly recommended." 4.5/5 stars, Scott Yanow, AllMusic Seeking to offer definitive audiophile grade versions of some of the most historic and best jazz records ever recorded, Verve Label Group and Universal Music Enterprises' audiophile Acoustic Sounds vinyl reissue series utilizes the skills of top mastering engineers and the unsurpassed production craft of Quality Record Pressings.
