Recording three studio albums for the EmArcy label, Cannonball Adderley's Sharpshooters were a very potent jazz band in the late 1950s, one that could literally swing the daylight outs of any situation and stand tall with their peer group. With pianist Junior Mance, bassist Sam Jones, and drummer Jimmy Cobb, Cannonball and brother Nat Adderley were young and well-respected enough to lay claim to this quintet as a top five band along with any mainstream jazz groupings of the day. With quintessential small group players in the rhythm section, the Adderleys really have the best band anyone could hope for in a soul-jazz context, but also for hard bop. Tracks like Tadd Dameron's "Our Delight," the fast "Stay on It," and the standard "If I Love Again" are all superlative examples of rough-and-ready post-Charlie Parker music, especially the latter song where the horns delve into some fascinating interplay. ~ Michael G.Nastos
