Nat Adderley led a double creative life at Riverside: featured on the highly successful working-group albums led by his brother Cannonball, and also devising several intriguingly different projects under his own name. Very possibly the most interesting was Work Song, which took its title from one of Nat's most widely known soulful compositions, and took its instrumentation from the younger Adderley's fertile imagination. Cornet, cello, and guitar make up a front line that will probably never be duplicated. The guitarist was his friend Wes Montgomery, just emerging towards jazz stardom; the cellist was the longtime bassist of Cannonball's band, Sam Jones.

Orrin's commentary (from his original liner notes): "There are two very good reasons why this album, which at this writing is just a couple of years short of being a half-century old, remains one of my warmest recording memories. Undoubtedly the more important reason is that this really represents the coming of age of Nat Adderley, a man I will always consider among the most adventurous and intelligent players and leaders I have ever worked with. But to step back and evaluate this album in a very personal way, it is half of what must be one of the most complicated and most rewarding weeks of recording activity I have ever experienced."

Features 24 bit remastering and comes with a mini-description. A stone killer from Cannonball Adderley's funky brother – one of the best soul jazz sets ever cut by Nat Adderley, and one done with a smoking 60s Atlantic Records groove! Nat's blowing trumpet throughout – and working in 2 different groups – one a larger ensemble with a tight soulful swing, arranged by Jimmy Wisner – the other a smaller combo with tenor from Joe Henderson and piano from Herbie Hancock! The whole thing grooves beautifully – and titles include "Gospelette", "Call Me", "Cantaloupe Island", "Hippodelphia", "The Other Side", and "Manchild".

Features 24 bit remastering and comes with a mini-description. Joe Henderson is again in the front line with Adderley for the Live at Memory Lane set. The music, which is in a more advanced hard bop vein than the earlier tracks, is well served by the rhythm section on loan from Cannonball Adderley's quintet: McCurdy, bassist Victor Gaskin, and pianist Joe Zawinul. While it doesn't seem to concern the enthusiastic audience at the Los Angeles club, listeners at home may find one or two of the tracks a bit rambling. Regardless, the set is worthwhile for the presence of Henderson, Zawinul's original pieces, Adderley's own contributions, and for the work of a rhythm section that was part of brother Cannonball's own considerable success during this period.

Features 24 bit remastering and comes with a mini-description. Cornetist Nat Adderley's first album as a leader after the collapse of Riverside found him switching to Atlantic and performing eight of his most rewarding compositions. With several brass players, Seldon Powell on tenor and flute, pianist Joe Zawinul (who provided the arrangements), bassist Sam Jones, Grady Tate or Bruno Carr on drums and guest spots by Victor Pantoja and Willie Bobo on Latin percussion, Nat performs such numbers as his greatest hit "Work Song," "Sermonette," "The Old Country," "Little Boy With The Sad Eyes" and "Jive Samba." It is a pity that the music on this valuable Lp has yet to be reissued on CD.

One of the best-ever Nat Adderley albums, and a damn funky set of tracks that has a tight soulful feel! The session's got a similar feel to some of the other rare late 60s Milestone albums (like the 2 killers by Bobby Timmons!) – especially in that it's got a group that plays with the fullness of a larger ensemble, and who race in and out nicely, to support the funky solos of the leader. Of course, some of the other players are pretty darn nice in the solo department too – like Joe Henderson on tenor, Jeremy Steig on fluge, and Joe Zawinu on piano – and they also manage to keep a tight rhythmic groove throughout. Titles include "The Scavenger", "Sweet Emma", "Rise Sally Rise", and "Melnat".

Cornetist Nat Adderley was at the peak of his powers in the mid-1960's. This Atlantic issue has four quintet numbers with tenor-saxophonist Joe Henderson (three also feature pianist Herbie Hancock) plus four tunes in which Nat is part of an 11-piece group. He plays quite well on such songs as "Cantaloupe Island," "Hippodelphia," "Gospellete" and even the then-current pop tune "Call Me," making this set one to search for.

The comparisons with Cannonball's quintet are inevitable, in part because of the title tune, in part because Adderley's quintet performs the same kind of earthy, blues-drenched repertoire, and finally because of the incendiary playing of alto saxophonist Vincent Herring. The saxophonist was a good fit with the trumpeter, and by the time of this recording, Adderly was at the peak of his powers, as capable on ballads as on the fast pieces. Adderly was an underrated performer, in the shadows of Cannonball, but as he shows on this set, he could blow with the best. Subtlety and nuance may not be his strengths, but he could light up a crowd with verve and energy. Jimmy Cobb kicks hard on drums and Walter Booker shines on bass, but pianist Rob Bargard contributes a merely average performance.
