Cannonball Adderley – Somethin’ Else – MoFi Ultradisc 180g 45RPM 2LP Box Set

MASTERED FROM THE ORIGINAL MASTER TAPES AND LIMITED TO 10,000 COPIES Julian Cannonball Adderley’s only Blue Note album, Somethin’ Else, would likely forever be famous in music lore if just for the presence of Miles Davis. The iconic composer/trumpeter steps into the role of sideman on the 1958 set, one of just a handful of times he’d make such a move after the calendar passed the mid-1950s. Yet evaluating Somethin’ Else strictly on Davis’ involvement misses the big picture. Plain and simple, Adderley’s jubilant work remains a jazz landmark due to the chemistry of its Hall of Fame personnel, enthusiasm of its participants, and sophistication of its arrangements – not to mention the reference-grade production and inclusion of the definitive renditions of two all-time jazz standards.
