"History Personified"

Mar 25, 2016

Phil discusses the life and times of jazz legend Julian "Cannonball" Adderley with jazz history expert Cary Ginell. Adderley was a contemporary of fellow legends John Coltrane, Bill Evans, and Miles Davis, yet is not remembered as well as many he played with, which is partially due to his death at the young age of 46, and the styles he chose to play. Phil and Cary dig into Cannonball's life, his impact, and classic jazz as a whole.
