Nancy Wilson/Cannonball Adderley is “an excellent collaboration of Nancy Wilson’s voice with Cannonball Adderley’s alto sax from the early ’60s. Not entirely a vocal album, five of the 12 cuts are instrumentals. A highlight is the gentle cornet playing of Nat Adderley behind Wilson, especially on Save Your Love for Me and The Old Country. Cannonball Adderley’s swinging, boppish sax is heard to excellent effect throughout. Joe Zawinul’s work behind Wilson on The Masquerade Is Over demonstrates that he is a talented, sensitive accompanist. On the instrumental side, Teaneck and One Man’s Dream are especially good group blowing sessions. On the other end of the spectrum, Adderley’s alto offers a lovely slow tempo treatment of the Vernon Duke – Ira Gershwin masterpiece I Can’t Get Started. To keep the listeners on their musical toes, the first couple of bars of Save Your Love for Me are quotes from So What from the Miles Davis Sextet’s seminal Kind of Blue session. Given the play list and the outstanding artists performing it, why any serious jazz collection would be without this classic album is difficult to comprehend.”
