AllMusic Review by

This two-LP set contains two complete Riverside albums by the great altoist Cannonball Adderley during the period when he was a sideman with the Miles Davis Sextet. Both sets are quite enjoyable for Adderley is featured with trumpeter Blue Mitchell and pianist Bill Evans (highlighted by "Nardis," "A Little Taste" and two takes of "Minority") and in jubilant form with vibraphonist MIlt Jackson and pianist Wynton Kelly on another date; their versions of "Things Are Getting Better" and "The Sidewalks of New York" are very enjoyable.
