Cannonball Adderley was enormously popular in Japan. That's no surprise; he was enormously popular everywhere. But there is a special quality that Japanese fans bring to adulation of their heroes, an intensity of feeling that many jazz artists have said they often experience as a physical sensation when they perform for Japanese audiences. That intensity can be heard in the audience reaction in this concert recording and felt in the stunning performances by Cannonball, his brother Nat, Yusef Lateef, and the driving rhythm section of Joe Zawinul, Sam Jones, and Louis Hayes. In 1963, Adderley was riding high, leading a band that was probably his best and included Lateef, one of his heroes. Cannon was playing with even greater zest than usual. Nippon Soul captures and shares that joy.
