About this item

Considered one of the best small group jazz sessions ever, on the classic album Somethin’ Else (Blue Note BST-1595) Cannonball Adderley - by then a member of the Miles Davis Sextet - was joined by his boss, Hank Jones, Sam Jones and the great Art Blakey.

All musicians shine all throughout on this single-session set, which includes perhaps the best instrumental jazz version of “Autumn Leaves” ever recorded. To the five tunes on the original LP, this edition adds the sixth tune recorded that day, “Allison’s Uncle” (also known as “Bangoon”), and a rarely heard alternative take of the aforementioned “Autumn Leaves.”
