The Cannonball Adderley Quintet in San Francisco is a 1959 album by The Cannonball Adderley Quintet. The album was recorded at The Jazz Workshop in San Francisco before an appreciative standing room only crowd, breaking new ground as a live recording taped in noisy club environments.
The groundbreaking album launched “soul jazz”, according to NPR, bridging “the gap between bebop and funk”.
Originally released by Riverside Records, the album has been reissued on CD several times since 1991 by Riverside and OJC. Producer and jazz critic Orrin Keepnews described the album as “the birth of contemporary live recording”.
