Cannonball Adderley

New bird on alto

Flew into New York City

Somethin’ else? Indeed

*Julian “Cannonball” Adderley was dubbed

“The New Bird” because of  the the influence

Charlie Parker had on him and how he played.

“Somethin’  Else” is one of his albums.  And yes,

he was something else.  I love listening to him,

especially that album.  To hear a song from that album

please click below. It is my personal favorite of his.

“Dancin’ in the Dark”
