Jazz Workshop Revisited is a live album by jazz saxophonist Cannonball Adderley recorded at the Jazz Workshop in San Francisco and released on the Riverside label featuring performances by Adderley with Nat Adderley, Yusef Lateef, Joe Zawinul, Sam Jones and Louis Hayes.[4]


In his review for in the May 9, 1963 issue of Down Beat magazine, jazz critic Pete Welding had this to say: "Spurred on by an appreciative audience present during the recording, the Adderley group has produced a collection that is both stimulating and accessible. There is plenty of good, strong blowing, and to this is added the interest of artful, well-constructed arrangements that enhance the tunes and strengthen the solos."[1]

The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow awarded the album 4 stars and states: "Adderley's greatest band — his sextet with cornetist Nat Adderley, Yusef Lateef (on tenor, flute and oboe), pianist Joe Zawinul, bassist Sam Jones, and drummer Louis Hayes — is featured on such exciting numbers as 'Jessica's Day,' Jones' 'Unit 7,' and 'The Jive Samba.' A special treat of this live date is hearing the leader's introductory words to several of the songs".[2] The Penguin Guide to Jazz awarded the album 3 stars stating "on favourite turf in San Francisco, the band are in good fettle ".[3]
