The quintet on this LP was not the first operated by Cannonball Adderley. The gregarious alto saxophonist and his cornetist brother Nat had a band earlier in the 1950s. They formed it shortly after they burst onto the New York scene from Florida, but hard economic breaks forced them to disband and seek work elsewhere. Cannonball went with Miles Davis, Nat with Woody Herman. As the decade wound down, Cannonball’s success with Davis and increased popularity with the public led him to think he was ready to retrieve Nat and again try leadership. He was right. The new Adderley quintet quickly became beloved of listeners in clubs across the country. Nowhere was it more enthusiastically received than at the Jazz Workshop in San Francisco. In the fall of 1959, Adderley called his producer, Orrin Keepnews, and said now was the time and the Workshop was the place to record the quintet live. Keepnews sprang into action. The result was this album, one of the most spectacularly successful — and enjoyable — live recordings in the jazz canon.
