  1. With three horns blazing (Lateef, brother Nat Adderley on trumpet and Cannonball on alto sax), the band charged through a stunning concert in front of the largest audience it had ever played. The five song, 50 minute set blasts off with Lateef s complex "dakhmicchartpucversguavesocodureled.xyzinfo" and never lets up.

  7. Nat sounds afraid of the crowd. Cannonball sounds like he's trying too hard. Sam Jones wasn't recorded loudly enough. Joe Zawinul wasn't too impressive either. The original version of "Work Song" from Nat Adderley's solo work is much better, featuring Wes Montgomery on guitar. They also performed a much better version of it on Nippon Soul.
