Cannonball Adderley

19 May

A great television presentation of Cannonball.

One of the true greats of a golden era of jazz. Unlike Miles Davis, Cannonball wasn’t concerned about wearing his heart on his sleeve. I love how he gets into the music, not worried about his coolness – he claps, pops his fingers, moves to the solos by others. He’s in the moment and loving it. And what a band! Check out the great Yusef Lateef.
