When Adderley signed with Capitol in 1963, he brought seven master tapes from Riverside, his previous record company, with him including this classic from 1962. One of Adderley’s most admired line-ups, they prefer risk to rampant virtuosity, yet have a bravura that today’s retro jazz misses by a mile. SN
