Newstalgia Downbeat - Cannonball Adderley Live At The Hollywood Bowl - 1967.

Newstalgia Downbeat featuring The Cannonball Adderley Quintet, live at The Hollywood Bowl. Recorded on August 11, 1967.

<strong>Cannonball Adderley - sayin' it.</strong>


Something special and rare this weekend. A set by the Cannonball Adderley Quintet, recorded live at Hollywood Bowl on August 11, 1967. They were the opening act for a Summer Jazz concert which also included Count Basie and Lou Rawls. I'll be including those in the coming weeks, or the next time it feels like Summer in Los Angeles (it's 90 degrees in Santa Monica today). Perfect hot day music.

Needless to say, this hasn't been available in any form anywhere since it was recorded. So it's a special concert and it's a great one.

Enjoy. And if you're on the West Coast, dip into something cool and turn this up.
