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.

Reception[edit]

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]
