Naturally! is an album by jazz cornetist Nat Adderley released on the Jazzland label featuring performances by Adderley with two separate groups, the first featuring Joe Zawinul, Sam Jones, and Louis Hayes, and the second with Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers, and Philly Joe Jones.


The Allmusic review by Alex Henderson awarded the album 3½ stars calling it a "solid and pleasing (if less than essential) album".[1] The All About Jazz review by Derek Taylor stated "Complimentary [sic] sides of a coin, these two quartets share the welcome common denominator of Nat Adderley. Fortunately, his role in the driver's seat would be repeated frequently over the ensuing decades. No doubt this earlier outing had something to do with it".[2]
