38-cannonball-adderl216873This album fits alongside some of the greatest jazz albums ever recorded. Few musicians could get the likes of John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Hank Jones, Art Blakey and Sam Jones to be part of the quintet. In the original sleeve notes, Leonard Feather comments that it is the coming together of the various jazz styles that makes this album work. He says that this leads to a "cohesive quality of their concerted efforts." The album manages to capture a moment in time prior to the recording of Miles Davis' Kind of Blue.
