Cannonball Adderley is of course one of the greatest jazz saxophonists of all time. I learned recently that he passed away the day I was born, August 8, 1975. I wish I could report that he had handed off his ability to swing his tail off!
This clip is a combination of live shows from Switzerland and Germany in 1963. It is great quality and fantastic playing. I adore the flow to Cannonball Adderley's lines.
