The Price You Got to Pay to Be Free is a live album by jazz saxophonist Cannonball Adderley recorded in Los Angeles, California in 1970 featuring performances by Adderley with Nat Adderley, Joe Zawinul, Walter Booker and Roy McCurdy with guest appearances by Nat Adderley, Jr. and Bob West.[2]

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Richard S. Ginell awarded the album 3½ stars and states "Cannonball was a populist at heart, and his generosity of spirit shines through this often deliciously diverse album, which ranges wildly from flat-out soul to Brazilian music to a cautious toedip into the avant-garde... This is a fascinating contemporary snapshot of the Quintet, whose later recordings are too casually dismissed these days".[3]
