A music teacher from Fort Lauderdale, Adderley moved to New York in 1955. Arriving very shortly after the death of Charlie Parker, he forged a sound that displayed not only aspects of Bird but also the influence of Benny Carter, Louis Jordan, and Eddie Cleanhead Vinson. Adderley had a full, rounded tone, and could play beautiful ballads or swirling, blistering tempos. In later years Adderley's band became very popular through his incorporation of blues, R&B, and gospel elements, but above all else he was a champion of melody and one of the greatest ballad stylists ever. He had his own band with his brother Nat from 1956-1957, then joined Miles Davis from 1957-1959, appearing on some of Davis's greatest masterpieces of the era, among them KIND OF BLUE and MILESTONES. From 1959 until his death, he once again led groups with his brother. His groups included such distinguished alumni as Yusef Lateef, Charles Lloyd, Sam Jones, Joe Zawinul, and George Duke. The 1967 song "Mercy, Mercy, Mercy" was a sizable pop hit. ~ Ron Wynn ---------- Related Artists ----------- Cole, Richie Woods, Phil Smith, Mike Watson, Bobby ---------- Roots & Influences ---------- Parker,Charlie Carter,Benny Davis,Miles Coltrane,John Donaldson, Lou ---------- Bibliography ---------- Baker, David N. |Jazz Style of Cannonball Adde|Lebanon, IN Jepsen, Jorgen Grunne|Discography of Cannoball Adde|Denmark Alternate Name : Julian Edwin Adderley Birthdate & Place : Sep 15, 1928 Tampa, Florida Deathdate & Place : Aug 8 , 1975 Gary, IN AMG Artist ID # : P000005981 Chronological Album List |Date| Label | Number |R S T|Rating --------------------------------+----+----------+--------+-----+------ Dizzy's Business |1993|Milestone |470692 |R S T| Phenix |1975|Fantasy |79004 |R S | Good Big Man |1974|Fantasy |79006 | | Good Inside Straight |1973|Fantasy |750 |R S | Good Music You All |1972|Capitol |11484 |R | OK Cannonball Adderley Quintet & O|1972|Power |9010 | | Good Price You Got to Pay To Be Free|1970|Capitol |636 | | Good Happy People, The |1970|Capitol |11121 | | OK Black Messiah |1970|Capitol |846 |R S |+BestG Country Preacher |1969|Capitol |0404 | S | Good Accent on Africa |1968|Capitol |2987 | | Good Why Am I Treated So Bad? |1967|Capitol |2617 |R | Good Them Adderley's |1967|Limelight |82032 |R | Good Radio Nights |1967|Night |91590 | | OK 74 Miles Away / Walk Tall |1967|Capitol |2822 | | OK Two for the Blues |1966|VSP |10 |R | Good Mercy, Mercy, Mercy!

Like most compilations, it provides a good introduction to his work, and works best for those with limited knowledge. ~ Ron Wynn, All Music Guide ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Country Preacher Artist : Cannonball Adderley Rating : Good Charts : Billboard #136, entered Mar 14, 1970, on charts 022 weeks Genre : Jazz Date : Oct ??, 1969 (recording) AMG ID : R000151342 --------- Album Releases --------- Capitol SKA 0404 ------- Album Personnel/Sidemen ------- Joe Zawinul - Piano ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Discoveries Artist : Cannonball Adderley Rating : Good Genre : Jazz Date : Jun 28, 1955 (recording) AMG ID : R000158337 --------- Album Releases --------- 1990 LP Savoy SJL-1195 1990 CS Savoy SJK-1195 ------- AMG Album Reviews ------- A 1990 reissue of songs that were newly discovered at that time. They're alternate takes or fresh works that were previously unissued. As such, it's interesting to note most of Cannonball Adderley's solos are as explosive and enticing as those that appeared on cuts that did make it onto album. There aren't any lost masterpieces, but also very little that's tedious or tepid. ~ Ron Wynn, All Music Guide ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Dizzy's Business Artist : Cannonball Adderly Sextet Rating : not rated yet Genre : Jazz Date : 1993 (release) AMG ID : R000172258 (album inprint) --------- Album Releases --------- 1993 CD Milestone MCD470692 CD Fantasy 47069 CD Milestone MCD-47069-2 ------- AMG Album Reviews ------- Though the nine songs on this new Cannonball Adderly reissue were originally done live at concerts in Japan and San Francisco in 1963, they nevertheless make a nice tribute to recently departed jazz giant Dizzy Gillespie. The assembled group was among the finest Adderly ever led, with Yusef Lateef proving a dynamic, unpredictable third solo voice on flute, tenor sax and oboe contrasting with Cannonball's pungent alto sax and Nat Adderly's pithy cornet solos. Bassist Sam Jones and drummer Louis Hayes were a topflight tandem, while Joe Zawinul was then playing bluesy, funky piano in his pre-synthesizer, Miles Davis/Weather Report phase. Prime cuts include "New Delhi," "Primitivo," andd the title track, but everything's illustrative of a prime band enjoying some great nights. ~ Ron Wynn, All-Music Guide ------- Album Personnel/Sidemen ------- Julian "Cannonball" Adderley - Sax (alto) Nat Adderley - Cornet Louis Hayes - Drums Sam Jones - Bass Danny Kopelson - Engineer Yusef Lateef - fl/sxt/obo Jackson Schwartz - Engineer Joe Zawinul - Piano -------- Album Tracks -------- Autumn Leaves Dizzy's Business Primitivo Jive Samba This Here Bohemia After Dark Never Say Yes Peter and the Goats New Delhi ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Domination Artist : Cannonball Adderley Rating : OK Charts : Down Beat #3.5 Genre : Jazz Date : Apr 26, 1965 (recording) AMG ID : R000134275 --------- Album Releases --------- Capitol T-2203 1965 Capitol ST-2203 ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Dreamweavers, The Artist : Cannonball Adderley and John Coltrane Rating : Good Genre : Jazz Time : 28:21 min Date : Feb 3 , 1959 (recording) AMG ID : R000134276 (album inprint) --------- Album Releases --------- CD Suitebeat 2003 Mercury MG 20449 1992 CD Vee Jay SBCD-2003 ------- AMG Album Reviews ------- W/ John Coltrane.

That point can be argued; what can't be disputed was that Yuseff Lateff, on tenor, oboe and flute, gave the band an instrumental push and urgency that its more popular soul-jazz material never matched. Both Cannonball and Nat Adderley were often pushed to the limit, and that competitive spirit extended to the rhythm section as well. ~ Ron Wynn, All Music Guide ----------------------- All-Music Guide Album ------------------------ Album : Somethin' Else Artist : Cannonball Adderley Rating : Best-of-Genre (First Pick) Charts : Down Beat #4.0 Genre : Jazz Time : 43:43 min Date : Mar 9, 1958 (recording) AMG ID : R000134300 (album inprint) --------- Album Releases --------- 1987 CD Blue Note B2-46338 1959 Blue Note BST-1595 1987 CS Blue Note B4-81595 CD Capitol 46338 CD Mobile Fidelity 563 CD Mobile Fidelity Sound Lab UDCD-563 ------- AMG Album Reviews ------- Recorded in NYC. ~ All-Music Guide Quintet.
