Jazz 100 - Cannonball Adderley 09 Jul 2017

Jazz 100 - Cannonball Adderley image

A winning blend of catchy melodies and grooving impetus, together with his soulful exuberance on alto saxophone, made Cannonball a hero of the 1960s ‘soul jazz’ movement. His quintet, with brother Nat on cornet, took two attempts at lift-off, suspended while Cannonball made a major impact with Miles Davis, before Cannonball’s ability to engage emphatically with an audience saw him soar.
