AllMusic Review by

This CD reissue (which as an earlier Lp reissue came out under Cannonball Adderley's name with the title of The Adderley Brothers In New Orleans) was a bit unusual for cornetist Nat Adderley and altoist Cannonball (along with bassist Sam Jones) teamed up with three of the more significant modern New Orelans musicians of the 1960's: Nat Perrilliat on tenor, drummer James Black and the then-unknown pianist Ellis Marsalis. The repertoire they perform is quite fresh but there is less excitement than one might hope and the musicians do not really form a unified group sound despite some strong individual moments.
