Cannonball Adderley • Pyramid


by Scott Yanow
Cannonball Adderley is in generally good form on this 1974 recording. His Quintet at the time featured cornetist Nat Adderley, keyboardist Hal Galper, bassist Walter Booker and drummer Roy McCurdy. Guests on some selections include guitarist Phil Upchurch, keyboardist George Duke and (on "Bess, Oh Where's My Bess") veteran pianist Jimmy Jones. The emphasis is on recent group originals including the three part "Suite Cannon," two Galper compositions and Cannonball's "Pyramid." Nothing too earthshattering occurs but this is an improvement over many of Adderley's Capitol recordings.

Cannonball Adderley está en buena forma en esta grabación de 1974. Su quinteto de entonces estaba formado por el cornetista Nat Adderley, el teclista Hal Galper, el bajista Walter Booker y el batería Roy McCurdy. Entre los invitados en algunas selecciones se incluyen el guitarrista Phil Upchurch, el teclista George Duke y (en "Bess, Oh Where's My Bess") el veterano pianista Jimmy Jones. El énfasis está en los recientes originales del grupo, incluyendo la "Suite Cannon" en tres partes, dos composiciones de Galper y "Pyramid" de Cannonball. No hay nada demasiado sorprendente, pero es una mejora con respecto a muchas de las grabaciones de Adderley en Capitol.
