Presenting Cannonball is the 1955 debut album by jazz saxophonist Cannonball Adderley, released on the Savoy label, featuring a quintet with Nat Adderley, Hank Jones, Paul Chambers, and Kenny Clarke.[2] The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow states: "Already at this early stage, Adderley was a powerful player with a soulful sound that was almost distinctive."[3] The CD release included bonus tracks of alternate takes of tracks from Adderley's recording debut originally released as Kenny Clarke's Bohemia After Dark (1955).
