Cannonball Adderley Quintet in Chicago (later released as Cannonball & Coltrane in 1964, on Limelight) is an album by jazz saxophonist Cannonball Adderley, his final release on the Mercury label, featuring performances by Adderley with John Coltrane, Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers and Jimmy Cobb. With Bill Evans substituting for Wynton Kelly on most tracks, these musicians would record the classic album Kind of Blue (1959), with regular employer Miles Davis, shortly after this session.

This is an album I would describe as multi-sensory and completely transportive. There’s boisterous and joyful percussion throughout, and some tasteful solos by Adderley, but for me what makes this record stand out are the memorable refrains and motifs. Adderley’s opening lead on Khatsana, on my first listen, made me think I had heard it a hundred times before; it’s narrative in such a familiar way.

Although the cover proclaims that this is the Cannonball Adderly Quintet, what we really have here is Cannonball fronting a large African flavored percussion section and a Nelson Riddle influenced big band. Cannonball’s brother Nat is also on hand for some hot cornet playing
