Event Description


Julian "Cannonball" Adderley is considered to be one of the all-time greatest jazz musicians. From "Kind of Blue" to "Them Dirty Blues", Cannonball's playing projected depth and command. But he also possessed the rare ability to connect and uplift the listener, shouting out "Joy" in every phrase. 

For Cannonball's 90th birthday anniversary, "Jubilation!" celebrates the genius of Cannonball Adderley. All-star veterans Jim Snidero (alto) and Eddie Henderson (trumpet) create a formidable frontline, along with Peter Zak (piano), Nat Reeves (bass) and Joe Farnsworth (drums), all mining some of Cannonball’s best material with their own personal touch. True to Cannonball’s groups, the result is a soulful, swinging affair.

“Snidero handily gets at his inspiration’s warm, buoyant sound and ability to burrow deeply into the harmonic structure of nearly any place his horn lands”–Jazz Times
