    In the wake of Miles Davis's pioneering collaborations with Gil Evans, it became quite fashionable in the 1950s and '60s for serious jazz musicians to work with well-known arrangers and to record those arrangements with large orchestras. DOMINATION is Cannonball Adderley's foray into such a setting, with ambitious yet accessible charts by Oliver Nelson on tunes by the Adderley brothers (Cannonball and Nat--who also plays trumpet on the album), Joe Zawinul, and others.
    Though the soulful, funky vibe that characterized most of Adderley's '60s work is still in full effect here, the sizable orchestra lends a large-scale punch to the music that's quite unusual for the style. The results are playful, sophisticated, and sonically impressive, with Nelson's arrangements highlighting dynamics and playing the orchestra off itself. Their lengthy, always-imaginative solos on nearly every track prove Nat and Cannonball are still the real stars here, however, which keeps this orchestral outing nicely balanced with the clarity and sensibility of small-group jazz.

  • Critic Reviews
    Mojo (Publisher) (p.122) - 4 stars out of 5 - "Cannonball is his routinely magnificent self while Oliver Nelson's percussion-heavy charts are soulful and bombastic."
