Cannonball Adderley, “The Definitive Cannonball Adderley,” Blue Note and Verve Records. This record just flies by, with a whole lot of great stuff on it. Adderley completely remakes “Lover Man,” gets out of the way of Miles Davis on a wonderful “One For Daddy,” delivers the definitive “Mercy, Mercy” and gets funky on “The Chocolate Nuisance.” To hear a sampler like this shows the range of styles and skills Adderley brought to his music over a long period.

Lionel Hampton, “Revisited,” Fuel 2000 Records. I don’t know the original albums, but this stuff was all recorded in the late 50s. As such, you get Lionel Hampton swinging, you get Lionel Hampton doing jump blues, and you get Lionel Hampton doing bizarre little ballads that sound like he was competing with Martin Denny or Esquivel. You get a lot of value for your money, 22 cuts of diversity, tight ensemble arrangements, and musical delight.

Various Artists, “A Tribute to the King,” Capitol Records. All old recordings by the likes of Paul McCartney, Willie Nelson & Leon Russell, Fine Young Cannibals, etc. Good versions of great songs, but not anything rare.
