In the nineteen sixties – as rock music was changing the pop world, saxophonist Cannonball Adderley, pianist Horace Silver and drummer Art Blakey drew bebop, rhythm and blues and gospel into a powerful small-group sound. Alto saxophonist Wess ‘Warmdaddy’ Anderson and drummer Kenny Washington lead inspired sets in tribute to their soulful predecessors.
