NAT ADDERLEY - SOUL OF THE BIBLE
Prime material from Nat Adderley and David Axelrod and despite the biblical leanings of the title, the record is pretty damn funky. As they did for the Zodiac, Axelrod and Adderley take a trip through a host of cultural milestones stopping along the way to turn each one into a new pillar of soul, working with Rick Holmes, who narrates the set in the same way he did on the Zodiac albums. Brother Cannonball Adderley ,Airto Moreira , Francisco Centeno and George Duke are among the players in the album's very funky backing and Axelrods production gives it that huge fat wide screen sound .
