Album originally produced by
This album teams two of the most talented and most popular jazz musicians in modern music. Cannonball Adderley is an artist of fire and startling rhythmic excitement. He is a player who has captured the imagination bf modern jazz fans. Ray Brown is the backbone of the Oscar Peterson Trio; a bass soloist and rhythm player of indisputable talent energy and creative ability. On this album, Brown not only shows his talent on his major instrument, the bass, but on cello as well. He plays cello on My One And Only Love, the title tune Two For The Blues and Baubles, Bangles And Beads. On these tunes, Hank Jones plays bass behind Ray's cello.
