RIO RANCHO, N.M. (AP) — A rare collection of previously unissued recordings by legendary jazz saxophonist Cannonball Adderley is becoming more accessible thanks to two small jazz labels seeking to keep jazz history alive.

Vancouver, Canada-based Cellar Music Group’s imprint Reel to Real and New York distributor la reserve records are scheduled Friday to release a digital version of Adderley performing at Seattle’s Penthouse jazz club.

“Cannonball Adderley’s Swingin’ in Seattle: Live at the Penthouse” features the jazz great’s quintet captured live on radio in 1966 and 1967 over four performances. For decades, the recordings sat largely unheard in archives until Canadian saxophonist and Cellar Music Group founder Cory Weeds found out about them.

Weeds told The Associated Press in an interview this week that producers wanted the public to hear the performances and sought to include as much of the recording as possible since it showed Adderley’s essence at the height of his career.

“It caught Cannonball and the band on fire,” said Weeds, who served as the collection’s executive producer. “The sound quality is incredible. And you hear the banter, the humor, and the emotion.”

Weeds said producers also wanted to add the stories Adderley told between sets.

A previous version of the collection was released in 2018 on a limited vinyl edition, but the digital release will contain more material, Weeds said.

Born in Tampa, Florida, in 1928, Julian Edwin “Cannonball” Adderley earned the name Cannonball from his high school nickname “cannibal,”which allegedly described his appetite. He moved to New York City in 1955, where he joined the hard bop jazz movement — a subgenre of bebop that incorporated rhythm and blues, gospel, and blues.

Miles Davis spotted Adderley and hired him to play on groundbreaking Davis albums “Milestones” and “Kind of Blue.”

Adderley would have a successful career and gained crossover success with his 1958 “Somethin’ Else” album and his 1966 “Mercy, Mercy, Mercy! Live at ‘The Club.’”

He died in 1975.

The digital release features Adderley on alto saxophone, younger brother Nat Adderley on cornet, Joe Zawinul on piano, Victor Gaskin on bass and Roy McCurdy on drums.

Matt Block, la reserve co-founder, said the collection will be available on all digital platforms, including Apple Music, Amazon Music, and Spotify.

Included in the release are rare photos and interviews with McCurdy, Cannonball’s widow Olga Adderley Chandler and recording engineer/radio DJ Jim Wilke.

The release comes amid the renewed Black Lives Matter movement as some activists are seeking to draw attention to historic Black writers and artists like Adderley.
