The point of departure for John Benson Brooks for his “Alabama Concerto” was a series of field recordings made by Harold Courtlander and this featured on Folkways as “Negro Folk Music of Alabama.” He has used them in an extended “concerto” in which written themes, written solos, and improvised solos alternate. Let it be said that the musicians involved should be given praise and recognition, especially Art Farmer and Barry Galbraith. Let it also be said that Cannonball Adderley was the Cannonball to be heard on Gil Evans' LP “New Bottle, Old Wine” which is Cannonball coming of age as an purposeful storytelling soloist.
