Released shortly after Julian "Cannonball" Adderley's death in August of 1975, this oddly named live, double album captures a show from the alto saxophonist's final tour. PHENIX features the final lineup of Adderley's long-running band, anchored by his cornetist brother Nat and electric keyboardist George Duke. Airto Moreira flavors the groove-oriented proceedings with his inimitable congas and hand percussion.
PHENIX, a joyful and funky walk through Adderley's songbook, stretches all the way back to his hard-bop recordings of the '50s. Almost all of his most beloved songs are here--"Jive Samba," "Work Song," "Country Preacher," and of course his hit "Mercy Mercy Mercy"--performed with Adderley's usual fire and grace. The band is absolutely on, tight and swinging, and the sound quality is excellent. One of the better live jazz albums of its era.
