O’s Notes: Swingin’ In Seattle“is a live recording at The Penthouse in during 1966-67. It is brought to light today by Zev Feldman and Cory Weeds as one of the inaugural releases on Cory’s new Reel to Real label. Cannonball (a-sax) leads the band with Nat Adderley (cornet), Joe Zawinul (p), Victor Gaskin (b) and Roy McCurdy (d). The quintet is full of energy and swinging hard though at the time they were viewed by many as being too commercial. We think not. The band is having a wonderful time and it spills into the audience! Highlights are “The Morning of The Carnival”, “The Girl Next Door”, “Somewhere” and “The Sticks”.
