Cannonball Adderley joined Miles Davisís band a few months before this session, and Davis played a major part in the recording, often assuming the role of leader. On ďLove For Sale,Ē Davis merely plays the melody and leaves the improvisation to Adderley. After a florid piano introduction, a two-bar Latin interlude leads into Davisís two-beat exposition of the tune. Davisís statement is followed by a return of the interlude, which then sets up a driving four-four where Adderley pulls out all the stops and demonstrates why he was one of the most gifted and individualistic of the disciples of Charlie Parker.
