Cannonball Adderly Tribute with Greg Hopkins Quintet
Julian "Cannonball" Adderly has left a huge impact on jazz music today. Cannonball's slick, blues-inspired alto sax playing hits like lightning. Adderly's alto sax made a perfect contrast to Coltrane's tenor in the famous Miles Davis Sextet.
Cannonball's music took on a strong R&B vibe with his own bands and collaborations with greats like Charles LLoyd, Joe Zawinul, and Yuseff Latief.
Trumpeter composer Greg Hopkins has lived his share of jazz history also. There is no greater arranger-band leader that we could think of to present Adderly's music with all it's fire.
