An exceedingly excellent live date from the legendary Village Vanguard, In New York captures the recording debut of the Adderley Sextet and finds Cannonball gliding through seven tunes with swinging ease on alto saxophone. Joined by brother Nat on cornet, and the versatile Yusef Lateef on tenor, flute, and oboe, Cannonball and his crew turn in what All About Jazz calls "perhaps the single most indispensable recording by the Adderley Brothers."
In New York is also the first recorded appearance of pianist Joe Zawinul who would go on to jazz prominence as a pioneer of the jazz-fusion genre and a founding member of the seminal group Weather Report. This special vinyl reissue is a must-have for fans of straight-ahead, classic jazz with an adventurous twist.
