Hummin' Review

by Scott Yanow

Cornetist Nat Adderley's second recording after his brother Cannonball's death feaures him in a sextet with tenor-saxophonist John Stubblefield, keyboardist Onaje Gumbs, bassist Fernando Gumbs, drummer Buddy Williams and percussionist Victor See Yuen. In addition, Nat Adderley Jr. provides vocal arrangements that use his voice plus two other singers on a pair of the seven selections. However the music on this Lp (other than the memorable "Hummin'") is somewhat dated and often a bit commercial; not one of Nat Adderley's more significant releases.
