Cannonball Adderley Quintet - In Chicago LP
When this album was made, Julian "Cannonball" Adderley (the leader of this date) and John Coltrane were members of the Miles Davis Sextet. With Miles, the two saxophonists recorded the incomparable masterpiece Kind of Blue - which was made around the same time that In Chicago was recorded - on March 2 and April 22, 1959. However, In Chicago - reissued on LP years later as Cannonball & Coltrane - is unique in that it presents the contrasts between Cannonball's alto and Trane's tenor without other frontline voices. The rhythm section features Miles' sidemen: Wynton Kelly on piano, Paul Chambers on bass, and Jimmy Cobb on drums.
