CANNONBALL ADDERLEY & MILT JACKSON - THINGS ARE GETTING BETTER - with this out of print edition unique marketing sticker with information about the artist and personnel involved in this masterpiece. Only available on this limited edition STICKER pressing. OUR ONE AND ONLY COPY FOREVER FACTORY SEALED LP From the moment he exploded from Florida onto the New York scene in 1955, Cannonball Adderley was accepted by musicians, critics and listeners as a welcome arrival. By the time he and Milt Jackson teamed up for Things Are Getting Better, Adderley was becoming a major figure, due in part to his membership in the Miles Davis Sextet, but primarily because of the expansive joyousness of his playing. Jackson's role in modern jazz went back to the early days of bebop when Dizzy Gillespie sent for him in 1945 to come from Detroit and join his sextet. Adderley and Jackson had in common superb skills in all aspects of music, a broad understanding and deep appreciation of jazz history and styles, and the earthiness bred by immersion in the blues. With the superlative rhythm section of Wynton Kelly, Percy Heath and Art Blakey, they produced one of the most exhilarating albums of the twentieth century. -------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Track Listings 1.
