AllMusic Review by

An anthology that presents early Cannonball Adderley material, showing him in the developmental stages sounding more like Charlie Parker than he would once he cemented a style. The songs are more in a straight, almost rigid hard bop setting, but are instructive in displaying even at this point the fluidity and spark that characterized his alto playing throughout his career.
