Famously Miles Davis did not record his composition 'Nardis' but Cannonball Adderley did on Portrait of Cannonball and pianist Bill Evans, Miles and Cannonball's Kind of Blue's bandmate also on Portrait (Riverside, 1958), ushered it into jazz immortality through frequent inclusion at his concerts. And that's just for starters.

Digging into the wonders of the Adderley firmament this coming Saturday at Luton's Bear club it's a Cannonball run to savour and while not as if the quintet are acting but Tony Kofi (the quintet's Cannonball), Andy Davies (Blue Mitchell), Alex Webb (Bill Evans), Andy Cleyndert (Sam Jones) and Alfonso Vitale (Philly Joe Jones) make it back to Luton where they actually recorded their fine Cannonball Adderley-themed live album Another Kind of Soul released last year.

So beautiful. Adore this. Such melting poignancy is gathered and explored in a nuanced way via insistent beacon-like off beats and deft pulsing development against a beautiful, simple, melody line, the track builds its own head bobbing sense of momentum. With softly finessed crafted and so human audio production as well this is from the wittily titled Unheimlich Manoeuvre (RareNoise, 24 September).

Norwegian bassist Myhre, you may well recall from Nils Petter Molvær's fine album Buoyancy, tenure in the doomsters Splashgirl or the band Finland's Rainy Omen on 'Aviary' has guitarist Jo David Meyer Lysne, pianist Jana Anisimova, (Hania Rani-esque perhaps) whose contribution is so still and very profound and the great Morten Qvenild who was in Finland with Berger on synths adding his own exquisite touch on board in an unforgettable blend.
