Cannonball Adderley Sextet: Monday YouTube Fix

Andrew Hitz

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.
