Julian “Cannonball” Adderley was one of the greatest saxophonists in the later half of the 20th century. With his crystal-clear sound and his ethereal way of playing, Cannonball became immediately “The New Bird” after Charlie Parker died. Julian and his brother Nat became the cornerstones of hard bop, and pioneers of soul jazz, although Cannonball could also entertain and became famous for his introductions, which you can find in Michel Brillié’s booklet. Recorded at the dawn of the 60s, these live tapes were the epicenter of a revolution, an avant-garde trend that heralded modern groove. -Patrick FRÉMEAUX

The Live in Paris collection by Michel Brillié allows listeners to hear previously-unreleased recordings (made at concerts and private- or radio-sessions) by the great 20th stars in jazz, rock & roll and song. These “live” takes, and the artists’ rapport with their audiences, gives these performances an additional soul and sensibility in counterpoint to the rigorous demands of studio recordings. Particular care was taken when restoring the sound of these tapes in order to meet CD standards while preserving the original colors of the period.
