Composed by Bobby Timmons.
Recorded: San Francisco, October 20, 1959
Rating: 95/100 (learn more)
At the beginning of this live performance at San Francisco’s Jazz Workshop, Cannonball Adderley introduces pianist Bobby Timmons’ funky jazz waltz “This Here” as “Dis Here” for “reasons of soul and description.” This early example of so-called soul jazz became quite popular, boosting sales of the album and helping popularize the group itself. Cannonball is at the top of his game here.
