**** The Nat Adderley Quintet Live at Sweet Basil's Project ****
.........out of the old cassette case.
As many of my fellow Dimers know I am a Cannonball Adderley completist/fanatic. In the past I've upload quite a few shows of Cannonball many of which I recorded myself way back when. After Cannon's untimely passing back in 1975 I lost touch with "Brother Nat". I had been purchasing his recordings but hadn't seen him live until October of 1989 a recording of which I uploaded here on Dime and heretofor will be know as "Volume 1" of this series of recordings. I was really taken with this band and went to see them as often as I could driving to New York from just outside of Philadelphia. As you can see I saw Nat's band a total of eleven times from '89 to '97 and recorded the band each time. It was a good swinging band and I always left the club uplifted. As Hal Galper once noted this was the last...as he put it of "the big beat" bands.
I decided to dedicate myself to putting these cassettes to cdr (hence the self-indulgent title) and will post them as I complete them here.
The remaining Nat Adderley recordings of this project are:
