“Hipness is not a state of mind, it is a fact of life” wrote Cannonball Adderley, a musician who embodied the 1960s and changed jazz with his joy and exuberance in performance. Tonight on Inquiry we speak with award-winning author, annotator, discographer and music historian CARY GINELL about his great new biography WALK TALL: THE MUSIC AND LIFE OF JULIAN “CANNONBALL” ADDERLEY. Cannonball was more than a great sax musician; he was an enthusiastic innovator and a dedicated teacher, spreading the joy of jazz across the nation. Tune in and find out why.

Inquiry welcomes CHET WILLIAMSON, writer, musician and WICN host. Tonight he talks about his two great blogs: WORCESTER SONGWRITERS OF THE GREAT AMERICAN SONGBOOK and JAZZ RIFFING ON A LOST WORCESTER. These two well-researched and entertaining blogs uncover a generally unknown history of the Worcester area and the songwriters, musicians, poets and other artists that were born here. Tonight Chet discusses Gary Lee Usher who wrote the Beach Boys hit “In My Room”, Robert Benchley’s wild radio show that he did with Artie Shaw and much more. Chet’s blog’s can be found at:
