Swingin' in Seattle: Live at the Penthouse (1966-1967) is a collection of previously-unissued recordings by the Cannonball Adderley quintet captured live at the height of their powers over four nights at the famous Penthouse jazz club in Seattle, WA between 1966 and 1967.

Just one week later, Adderley would record his classic Mercy, Mercy, Mercy: Live at "The Club" album at the Capitol Records studio in Hollywood, CA.

This set features Cannonball Adderley on alto saxophone, Nat Adderley on coronet, Joe Zawinul on piano, Victor Gaskin on bass and Roy McCurdy on drums.

The extensive booklet includes rare photos by Tom Copi, Ray Avery, Lee Tanner and others; essays by music journalist Bill Kopp and original recording engineer/Seattle radio DJ Jim Wilke; interviews with drummer Roy McCurdy, Cannonball's widow Olga Adderley Chandler and saxophonist Vincent Herring; plus much more!

Adderley was an American jazz alto saxophonist of the hard bop era of the 1950s and 1960s. He worked with trumpeter Miles Davis, on his own 1958 Somethin' Else album and on the seminal Davis records Milestones (1958) and Kind of Blue (1959). He was the older brother of jazz trumpeter Nat Adderley, a longtime member of his band.
