Cannonball's Bossa Nova' is a 1962 album by jazz musician Julian "Cannonball" Adderley. First released on Riverside in 1963, the album was reissued on Capitol Records several times with different covers and titles.


The Allmusic review by Al Campbell awarded the album 2 stars and states: "Unfortunately this release contains little fire, as Adderley didn't get much rehearsal time with these musicians. Combined with the repetitious nature of the Bossa Nova these proceedings can get tedious."[1] The Penguin Guide to Jazz awarded the album 3 stars, stating: "Cannonball's Bossa Nova finds Adderley on a Brazilian vacation, with some of the local talent. Little more than a sweet-natured excursion into some of the indigenous music, it's a pleasing diversion."[2]
