In the immediate aftermath of his spell in Miles Davis' band, during which time that legendary ensemble recorded the classic Milestones and Kind of Blue albums, alto saxophonist and bandleader Julian “Cannonball” Adderley formed a new quintet that recorded a series of albums over the next year or so, which are regarded as some of his most significant work, and the content of three of those original LP releases – The Cannonball Adderley Quintet in San Francisco, Them Dirty Blues, and At the Lighthouse – is brought together here. This collection captures one of the genre's important personalities leading one of his best groups during a key period of his career, and it makes for thoroughly entertaining listening.
