If Julian "Cannonball" Adderley never developed the reputation of a supreme talent scout, like many of his bandleading contemporaries, it was only because the Adderley group remained so stable. When a chair opened, though, the alto saxophonist invariably found a stellar replacement. On his 1973 album Inside Straight it was Hal Galper, later a Phil Woods fixture and leader of his own fine trio. Galper's electric piano and three originals give a distinct personality to this Adderley set, which was recorded "live in the studio" before a large group of appreciative fans who clearly savored the patented Adderley brothers groove.

Introduction, Inside Straight, Saudade, Inner Journey, Snakin' the Grass, Five of a Kind, Second Son, The End
