Cannonball Adderley & the Poll-Winners


What makes this album so special, in addition to the sterling personnel, is its gentle swinging charm and walking and up-tempos that give Brown a chance to stand out. Feldman’s vibes chill Adderley’s horn ever-so-slightlyand Montgomery’s guitar lines and chords add snap and heft to the rhythm section. […]
