Sunday Music: The Cannonball Adderley Quintet - "This Here"

Recorded in San Francisco, 1959:
Thank you very much, ladies and gentlemen. Now it's time to carry on some. Can we have the lights out please, for atmosphere? Now we're about to play a new composition, by our pianist, Bobby Timmons. This one is a jazz waltz, however, it has all sorts of properties. It's simultaneously a shout and a chant, depending upon whether you know anything about the roots of church music, and all that kinda stuff - meaning soul church music - I don't mean, uh, Bach chorales and so, that's different. You know what I mean? This is SOUL, you know what I mean? You know what I mean? Allright. Now we gonna play this, by Bobby Timmons. It's really called "This Here". However, for reasons of soul and description, we have corrupted it to become "Dish-ere". So that's the name: "Dish-ere"
