In the Bag (also released as The Adderley Brothers in New Orleans) is an album by jazz cornetist Nat Adderley released on the Jazzland label featuring performances by Adderley with his brother Cannonball Adderley, Sam Jones, Nat Perrilliat, James Black, and Ellis Marsalis.[1]


The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 2 stars stating "The repertoire they perform is quite fresh but there is less excitement than one might hope and the musicians do not really form a unified group sound despite some strong individual moments".[2] The Penguin Guide to Jazz awarded the album 3 stars stating "In the Bag is welcome for a further glimpse of the brothers playing together but isn't specially exciting".[3]
