Album Remarks & Appraisals:

In September 1959 Julian "Cannonball" Adderley left Miles Davis' band and established a quintet with his brother, which turned out to be much more successful than his first one! In November 1960, they set off for their first European tour as part of Norman Granz's Jazz at the Philharmonic; the Adderley quintet was assigned the task of opening the shows. Five months later, they took the stage as headliners during this 1961 performance!

Four tracks from the Cannonball Adderley Quintet, and three from the Benny Carter Sextet.

Album Notes

Liner Note Author: Karsten Mützelfeldt.

Recording information: Gürzenich Concert Hall, Cologne, Germany (04/16/1961); WDR Studio (04/16/1961); Gürzenich Concert Hall, Cologne, Germany (11/27/1961); WDR Studio (11/27/1961).

The two-fer, Live in Cologne 1961 + Benny Carter Sextet, showcases two dates, recorded separately. The first features the Cannonball Adderley Quintet (featuring cornetist Nat Adderley) and was captured a day after the group's other 1961 concert album, En Concert Avec Europe1. This is a live show and reveals the Adderley brothers in fine, funky form. The second date, featured on the latter half of this collection, is an in-studio session featuring saxophonist Benny Carter backed by members of Kurt Edelhagen's Orchestra. Recorded at Studio 1 of the West German Broadcasting Corporation, it is also a warm, swinging session. ~ Matt Collar
