Celebrating The Birthday of Cannonball Adderley

Sep 18, 2012

This week on 12th Street Jump we celebrate the birthday of Cannonball Adderley with our special guest Kim Park.

Cannonball Adderley

Julian Edwin "Cannonball" Adderley (September 15, 1928 – August 8, 1975)[2] was a jazz alto saxophonist of the hard bop era of the 1950s and 1960s.

Adderley is remembered for his 1966 single "Mercy Mercy Mercy", a crossover hit on the pop charts, and for his work with trumpeter Miles Davis, including on the epochal album Kind of Blue (1959). He was the brother of jazz cornetist Nat Adderley, a longtime member of his band. -wikipedia
