The spirited young musicians' second release under their collective name dedicate a CD to songs associated with Cannonball Adderley. Vincent Herring, youngster Nicholas Payton and tenor saxophonist Mark Turner make the uptempo "Del Sasser" an instant favorite. Cornetist Nat Adderley joins in for two tracks, including the soulful "This Here." The snappy rendition of "Dat Dere" invites comparison to the versions waxed by both Adderley and Art Blakey. A surprise track is "Fiddler on the Roof," with its turbocharged exchange of solos.
