Whether playing with his alto saxophonist brother Julian (Cannonball) or leading his own bands, Nat Adderley's musicality and good humor have for 40 years attracted a substantial audience and the admiration of his peers. Little Big Horn is from the early 1960s, when the Adderleys' sextet was riding high. Records by the brothers, together or separately, were staple items in the jazz discography. The album's reappearance makes again available a collection that highlights Nat's glowing cornet improvisations and his talent as a composer. They encompass a variety of moods, from the Latin excitement of "El Chico" to the hymn-like simplicity of "Loneliness" and the lyricism of "Roses for Your Pillow." In the all-star band accompanying Adderley, guitar duties are split between two masters of the instrument, Jim Hall and Kenny Burrell.
