“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.

The phrase "Living Legend" is often bandied about - but there aren't many who get that designation from the Library of Congress. The late Bobby Short was but one of his many accomplishments.

This show from Michael Feinstein's Jazz and Popular Song series features performances from Barbara Carroll, Paula West, T. Oliver Reid, and more. Wendell Pierce hosts.
