Louis Hayes & The Cannonball Legacy Band
Maximum Firepower

Hard bop drummer Louis Hayes has often been heard in memorable encounters with Horace Silver, Cannonball Adderley, Oscar Peterson & others. But he has an exceptional knack for assembling some of the tightest, most cohesive straight-ahead units under his own name. Here, in Tribute to the great Cannonball Adderley, Louis' drums spur on the likes of saxophonist Vincent Herring, trumpeter Jeremy Pelt, pianists Rick Germanson & Anthony Wonsey and bassist Richie Goods in a highvoltage session caught in amazing sound by Rudy Van Gelder.

Featuring Vincent Herring- alto saxophone; Jeremy Pelt- trumpet; cornet & flugelhorn; Rick Germanson or Anthony Wonsey- piano; Richie Goods- bass.

Tracks: Jessica's Birthday; This Here; Lisa; Little Boy With the Sad Eyes; The Two of Them (Dedicated to Cannonball and Nat); Sweet Georgia Bright; New Delhi; Sack O' Woe; Autumn Leaves; Unit 7.
