France 1969 [no label, 2CD]

Live at the Théâtre de l’Alhambra, Bordeaux, France; March 14, 1969. Very good soundboard.

From the Miles Davis sextet in 1959 to appearing on the Kung Fu TV series in 1975; and even getting a tribute by Joe Zawinul on Weather Report’s Black Market album, that’s a big arch for anyone, but probably all in a day’s work for saxophonist Cannonball Adderley.

  2. Now this os real jazz. I approve.

    It could have been improved only if the musical amd spiritual master John McLaughlin had sat in. Shame he didn’t but this is excellent anyway.

    Thank you, BigO.

    By Brian Griffin on Dec 1, 2019

  3. This is real Jazz by an all time great.This has my approval. Mclaughlin is a hack and is a big reason Jazz died in the early 70.s

    By Smashmouth on Dec 1, 2019

  4. Everybody knows: The musical and spiritual master IS John McLaughlin…

    By harmon on Dec 1, 2019

  5. I reiterate ‘ McLaughlin is a hack . He would have turned this show into a jazz mutation with his flashy clothes ‘ show off guitar solos and look at me persona. Less is more when it comes to jazz . Subtlety matters . If Wes Montgomery were in this lineup then that would certainly enhance it .

    By Smashmouth on Dec 1, 2019

  6. Same with Joe Pass ‘ Charlie Christian ‘ Tal Farlow ‘ Django ‘ any of the true jazz guitar greats . The hack McLaughlin does not belong on that list .

    By Smashmouth on Dec 1, 2019

  7. I’ve been laying low lately cause I’m so disgusted with the way the god damned niggers has taken over this great country. Talking about it does no good . My wife and me rarely see a white face anymore when we leave the house so we stay home most of the time . It’s not just the niggers’ but the Muslims and indians are out of control too . The god damn indians. own most of the convienence stores and motels . Our beautiful white race is under siege .

    By Jerry Disher on Dec 2, 2019

  8. The Nigger Football League and Nigger Basketball association is both goin on right now . Hardly a white face anywhere to be seen . Just a bunch of monkeys with tattoos acting like baboons in a cage . I can’t watch that goddamned shit .

    By Jerry Disher on Dec 2, 2019

  9. I feel you Jerry . Don’t forget the white mudshark sluts who fuck these apes are worse than the apes . You can trace all this to Lyndon Baines Johnson and his civil rights act . Up until 1967 interracial marriage was illegal. Those laws need to go into effect again but they won’t . That ship has sadly sailed .

    By harmon on Dec 2, 2019

  11. Who exactly is this John McLaughlin?

    By David N. Zimmer on Dec 2, 2019

  12. Jerry and hhh is right on . Fuckin coons and Jew bastards ‘Muslims etc . Fuckin white bitches Fuckin them monkeys and makin high yellers . Like Jerry says , see it every time you leave the house . Hey Anti was watching more football and the fuckin coons is everywhere of course .watched some of the Ravens 49ers game and practically all coons . Didn’t see one white player on defense or offense. Coon QB in Jackson . ;49ers didn’t have hardly any whites either just Bosa and Jimmy G

    By Derrick on Dec 2, 2019

  13. Usually can’t stand the patriots but watched them get their asses beat by the Texans last night . Texans got a all coon team too . Didn’t see one white player In the lineup . Of course when they made a big play or scored they all got together and acted disrespectful like the monkeys they is and did them in your face celebrating. Some of the very few white players are acting like that too now I call em white monkeys. The old timers never acted this way Coach Landry ‘ Don Shula ‘ Vince Lombardi ‘ Chuck Noll ‘ George Allen would have cut their motherfuckin coon asses

    By Derrick on Dec 2, 2019

  14. Anti I swear even the coon players didn’t act this way back in the day 60s 70s . They also had coon wives and kids and would never think of looking at a white bitch . It’s a modern coon thing . They know that the men in the white sheets ain’t around no more to stop that shit .

    By Derrick on Dec 2, 2019

  15. Hey Derrick ‘ the white women who go with them are worse than the niggers . If I had a daughter which I don’t thank god ‘ she’d be out of the family if she did that .

    By Nelson on Dec 2, 2019

  16. It’s everywhere Derrick. Even tv shows and commercials are encouraging mixed couples. You see mixed couples on shows all the time now . There was a time that would have not been tolerated. The KKK isn’t coming back either unfortunately.

    By Nelson on Dec 2, 2019

  17. Thank you BigO. A fine concert with a remarkable band!

    By samspade on Dec 2, 2019

  18. not sure what disgusts me more on this site, the horrid racism or the lame dick talk. God forbid, we should simply comment on THE MUSIC this site so kindly posts…the beauty of this set transcends the ugliness of these comments, thankfully…thanks BigO!

    By Don on Dec 3, 2019

  19. Jerry - It’s hopeless. The future is here and you’re not part of it. Spare yourself any further agony. Kill yourself now.

    By MrBill on Dec 3, 2019

  20. Oh, by the way, very fine music here.

    By MrBill on Dec 3, 2019

  21. I agree it’s hopeless. It wouldn’t be as bad if the goddamned niggers acted the way they used to in the fifties and sixties. With respect. But these niggers today act like savages with them goddamned tattoos ‘ dreadlocks and goin with white women . I agree that these women are worse than the niggers . Some have mentioned the klan bein gone as the reason, but lack of true leaders who loved our white race is a big reason too. Men like Governor George Wallace for example.

    By Jerry Disher on Dec 3, 2019

  22. In another fifty years the white race won’t exist at this goddamned rate

    By Jerry Disher on Dec 3, 2019

  23. Has anybody else noticed the sliding scale in this series of comments? The more racist the content, the grammatical, spelling, and word usage errors. Speaks to your educations (or lack thereof), rednecks…

    By O.B.Dan on Dec 13, 2019

  24. Great Adderly gig, BTW…

    By O.B.Dan on Dec 13, 2019

  25. O.B.Dan Speaks to your educations (or lack thereof)Is that a word? or did you make that up,I know you went to the same collage as Mark

    By Tom Petty's Ghost on Dec 13, 2019

  26. Whites marrying blacks should be illegal. The world today has no morals . The days of people marrying animals is coming. Mark my words . I never thought I’d see the day when people could change their gender via surgery.

    By HHH on Dec 13, 2019

  27. Today everything is a freak show . Example Bruce / Caitlin Jenner

    By HHH on Dec 13, 2019

  28. If Lassie was on tv today Timmy would be married to her . Anything is considered acceptable today , except voicing disgust about immoral behavior that is .

    By HHH on Dec 13, 2019

  29. Marrying blacks is the equivalent to marrying a gorilla. The landmark case Loving vs the state of Virginia opened the doors and interracial marriage became legal . Before that you could go to prison. You had morals back then

    By HHH on Dec 13, 2019

  30. T.P.G of course it’s a word, it is the plural of education when speaking of several people, or addressing them, in a number of specific contexts they will have had several and various educations (or lack thereof).
    He [and Mark] are also correct in that the degree of racism and intolerance would appear to increase exponentially alongside the lack of ability to spell or understand simple grammar and vice versa

    Good grief!


    By swappers on Dec 13, 2019

  31. hhh ‘ We brought the fuckin coons over here from Africa. Coons acted ok when I was a kid . Course you had the fuckin race riots . Watts ‘ Detroit ‘ Birmingham etc and coons like H Rap Brown sayin burn the country down but white bitches wasn’t marrying coons makin hi yellers and the coon athletes was respectful and acted with class like Frank Robinson ‘ Bob Gibson ‘ Jim Brown ‘ Hank Aaron Willie Mays Bill Russell

    By Derrick on Dec 13, 2019

  32. I was a fuckin Dallas Cowboys fan growing up and I remember Bullet Bob Hayes the fastest motherfuckin football player of all time catching them long bombs from Dandy Don Meredith. He was a gentleman. Just handed the ball to the ref after a td none of that dreadlocks tattoo shit and showin up your opponent.

    By Derrick on Dec 13, 2019

  33. They also was married to coon women , none of that marrying white woman bullshit

    By Derrick on Dec 13, 2019

  34. The men in the white sheets would see to that

    By Derrick on Dec 13, 2019

  35. Derrick is describing an Uncle Tom
