Cannonball Adderley introduces his 1967 recording of “Walk Tall,” bysaying, “There are times when things don't lay the way they're supposedto lay. But regardless, you're supposed to hold your head up high andwalk tall.” This sums up the life of Julian “Cannonball” Adderley, a manwho used a gargantuan technique on the alto saxophone, pride inheritage, devotion to educating youngsters, and insatiable musicalcuriosity to bridge gaps between jazz and popular music in the 1960s and'70s. His career began in 1955 with a Cinderella-like cameo in a NewYork nightclub, resulting in the jazz world's looking to him as “the NewBird,” the successor to the late Charlie Parker. But Adderley refusedto be typecast. His work with Miles Davis on the landmark Kind of Bluealbum helped further his reputation as a unique stylist, but Adderley'sgreatest fame came with his own quintet's breakthrough engagement atSan Francisco's Jazz Workshop in 1959, which launched the popularizationof soul jazz in the 1960s. With his loyal brother Nat by his side,along with stellar sidemen, such as keyboardist Joe Zawinul, Adderleyused an engaging, erudite personality as only Duke Ellington had donebefore him. All this and more are captured in this engaging read byauthor Cary Ginell.

“Hipness is not a state of mind, it is a fact of life.” – Cannonball Adderley
