Album Description

Swingin' in Seattle: Live at the Penthouse (1966-1967) is a collection of previously-unissued recordings by the Cannonball Adderley quintet captured live at the height of his powers over four nights at the famous Penthouse jazz club in Seattle, WA between 1966 and 1967. Just one week later, Adderley would record his classic Mercy, Mercy, Mercy: Live at 'The Club' album at the Capitol Records studio in Hollywood, CA. This limited-edition deluxe two-LP set features Cannonball Adderley on alto saxophone, Nat Adderley on cornet, Joe Zawinul on piano, Victor Gaskin on bass and Roy McCurdy on drums. The extensive booklet includes rare photos by Tom Copi, Ray Avery, Lee Tanner and others; essays by music journalist Bill Kopp and original recording engineer/Seattle radio DJ Jim Wilke; interviews with drummer Roy McCurdy, Cannonball's widow Olga Adderley Chandler and saxophonist Vincent Herring; plus much more. The vinyl edition is mastered by the legendary Bernie Grundman at Bernie Grundman Mastering Studios in Hollywood, CA and pressed at Microforum Vinyl Record Pressing in Toronto, Ontario. Swingin' in Seattle, along with Etta Jones's A Soulful Sunday: Live at the Left Bank, are the first two releases from the newly-formed Reel to Real Recordings launched by producer Zev Feldman and saxophonist Cory Weeds and focused on important historical jazz releases.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
