Two for the Blues Review

by Scott Yanow

This long out-of-print LP features an 18-piece big band arranged by Ernie Wilkins with plenty of solos from the co-leaders (altoist Cannonball Adderley and Ray Brown on bass and cello) and a few spots for tenor-saxophonist Yusef Lateef and cornetist Nat Adderley. Highpoints include Oscar Pettiford's "Tricotism," "My One and Only Love" and "Work Song." It's a rare big-band outing for Adderley.
