You are probably good where you are. I like to listen to all of this set. . . I generally play a different disc each time I pull it down and have not gotten tired of any of them. I'm more inclusive and expansive as far as collecting goes than you, and I've been retired for almost fourteen years now and have had lots of time to play discs. I think for your collection you're fine with the 2 cd set.

 

NP: Cannonball Adderley and Nat Adderley "The David Axelrod Years" Stateside 2 cd set, disc 1

Interesting to read your impressions of the IE album. I'm a big fan of the first two and haven't really connected with the new one nearly as much. For me it lacks the laser focus of the earlier ones and meanders a bit. I appreciate it but don't love it like the others.

Sounds like we liked / disliked them for the same reasons. 

I liked the more diffuse approach, which opened things up a bit, at least to my ears, for the instrumentalists, particularly Stewart on bass. I find Moor Mother's schtick a little irritating, but liked it a lot in the smaller portions served by this record.

Not for everybody's taste (and only sometimes mine), but Barbarito Diez is rightly considered a legend, and the arrangements (a precursor to charanga, just that these are danzons) have more detail to them than a casual listen might at first suggest.

Bottom line - Panart. Ain't no bullshit there.

It´s strange that Vol. 3 , decades ago was really hard to find. Eventually I got the LP as Japan Import , and later the CD with Mini-LP Sleeve also Japan Import. 

I mostly bought it for Side B with Curtis Fuller, that´s the really fantastic part of the album. 

I always said that the best Powell is on occasions when he played with horn players, like with Navarro and Rollins on Vol. 1, with Sonny Stitt on the Prestige album, with Bird and Fats at Birdland, with Bird and Diz at Massey, with Donald Byrd and Phil Woods at Birdland, with Hawk in Germany, with Dexter or Don Byas in Paris.....

The first side is not so interesting or it would have been fantastic if it also had Curtis Fuller. 
The slow blues "Some Soul"...... Slow Blues was not Bud´s strongest point, he is much better on "Dry Soul" on Vol. 4. 
"Blue Pearl" sounds like a Duke Jordan Composition. This should be played with horns, as a typical hard bop tune. 
"Frantic Fancies" is based on "Strike Up The Band", but it is no theme, only improvisation from the start on. How great would it have been with Curtis Fuller playing the theme and a solo and then Bud....because his solo is really fine. 

The weakest point is when the great Chambers would start a solo and Bud always get´s into it. That´s not the way you support a bassist. You even can hear when Paul gets unsure to continue his solo or just walk on. I don´t know why Bud did that to Paul. 

I think it would have been a fantastic album, if 1) they would have recorded the whole album with Fuller with the exception of the Bach Piece as a solo, and if Bud would lay out or just gently support Paul Chambers when he is soloing. 

P.S.: About the cover: Bud and a Bari player. Who might it have been and too pity there is no recording of it. That would have been another great thing, maybe with Cecil Payne, or Pepper Adams. By the way, around the same time Curtis Fuller did "Bone and Bari" ......and.....I got it signed from Mr. Curtis Fuller, with a dedication.......!!!!!!
