Cannonball adderley and john coltrane - cannonball and coltrane
Elsewhere on this vibrant Sunday evening set, drummer McCurdy is prominently featured on Nat Adderley's blazing uptempo swinger "Five of a Kind," which also features the dynamic altoist stretching out heroically in Bird-like fashion on his horn. Brother Nat turns in a particularly bristling muted trumpet solo on this boppish romp. The brothers Adderley dig deep on the slow blues "Oh Babe!," which features Nat delivering some wild, unrestrained, earthy vocals. And they conclude their Newport in New York set with a snippet from their hard-bop signature number, "The Scene." Sadly, Cannonball died on August 8, 1975, just one month after this Newport gig.
