Continuing the Adderley theme, a Rifftides reader who identifies himself as El Destiny, sent the following message, which includes a link.
This article includes a rare mp3 of Cannonball Adderley jamming with a novelty act of singing squirrels.
The article tells the story of jazzman Don Elliott and partner Sascha Burland recording the track in an attempt to compete with Alvin & the Chipmunks. (Who had their own troubles with record labels…!)
Within the article are several links, including one to an MP3 of Cannonball playing “Yardbird Suite” with Elliott’s and Burland’s Nutty Squirrels.
