By the end of 1961, the celebrated Cannonball Adderley Quintet had made two significant changes. The first was to bring in a young white pianist named Joe Zawinul who (despite the additional handicap of also being Austrian) quickly developed into a remarkably soulful player and writer, before going on to even greater fame as the driving force of Weather Report. Secondly, the group expanded to Sextet size by adding the strong and imaginative tenor sax--and flute, and oboe--of Yusef Lateef. With the rest of the original cast (the Adderley brothers, Sam Jones, Louis Hayes) intact, they soon turned to what they did best, recording an exciting in-performance album before an enthusiastic crowd, this time at New York City's friendly Village Vanguard.

with Nat Adderley, Yusef Lateef, Joe Zawinul, Sam Jones, Louis Hayes
