AllMusic Review by

When Riverside Records went into bankruptcy, Adderley signed with Capitol, a label whose interest in jazz was tended to be short-lived. As a result, Cannonball's recordings would become more commercial as the 1960s developed but this early Capitol effort is quite good. Charles Lloyd had just joined Adderley's Sextet and his tenor and flute were major assets; he contributed two of the four songs ("Sweet Georgia Bright" and "The Song My Lady Sings") to this fine session which also includes Nat Adderley's "Little Boy with the Sad Eyes" and yet another version of "Work Song."
