Limited vinyl LP repressing of this jazz classic. 1960's Work Song finds cornet player Nat Adderley at his artistic peak with this bluesy, hard-bop gem. Critics throughout the years have praised Adderley's lyrical work on this album, which includes his own writing and standards. Work Song was recorded in January 1960 and released on the Riverside label. It features Adderley with Bobby Timmons, Wes Montgomery, Sam Jones, Percy Heath, Keter Betts and Louis Hayes in various combinations from a trio to a sextet, with the unusual sound of pizzicato cello to the fore on some tracks. The title tune was given lyrics and covered the following year by Oscar Brown Jr. And has become a standard in both vocal and instrumental forms.
