Nat Adderley
Work Song
1960

Despite playing in the shadow of big brother Cannonball, Nat Adderley managed to carve out a sizeable jazz niche for himself, blending his cornet into a variety of intriguing line-ups for the Riverside label. On this 1960 date, Adderley is joined up front by Sam Jones on cello and Wes Montgomery on guitar. Add a topnotch rhythm section and the result is a session that swings with a relaxed confidence. On the title track and Cannonball Adderley's propulsive "Sack of Woe," the group sounds like they'd played together for years. It's a shame they didn't.
