Cannonball Adderley Quintet

Throughout the decade when pop ruthlessly swept jazz aside, the Adderley brothers managed to stay in business with their distinctive “spirit of the south” – an optimistic, life-affirming style of modern jazz, bursting with colour yet steeped in the blues. The Liederhalle concert was the highlight of the Cannonball Adderley Quintet’s 1969 European tour.

From soul and blues (Sweet Emma, Oh Babe) to free-form contemporary (The Painted Desert) and lollypops cleverly combined with commercialism (Work Song), the audience that night witnessed the sublime art of the quintet.

Cannonball Adderley Quintet

Julian "Cannonball" Adderley arrived in New York from Tallahassee in the 1950s, where he had a job on his hands to play his way out of the shadow of Charlie Parker - a major challenge for any saxophonist of the day.  But the move worked.  Before long, Miles Davis had brought him into his quintet to play alongside Coltrane.

After splitting with Miles and forming his own band, he brought his brother Nat into the band as a trumpeter and coronetist.  In 1969, Julian set out on a European tour with brother Nat, Joe Zawinul, the dynamic bassist Victor Gaskin and the energetic Ray McCurdy on drums.
