Biography

The Cannonball Adderley Quintet featured Cannonball Adderley on alto sax and his brother Nat Adderley on cornet. Adderley’s first quintet was not very successful. However, after leaving Miles Davis’s group, he and his brother reformed and enjoyed more success.

The new quintet (which later became the Cannonball Adderley Sextet) and Cannonball’s other combos and groups included such noted musicians as: pianists Bobby Timmons, Victor Feldman, Joe Zawinul (later of Weather Report), and George Duke; bassists Sam Jones, Walter Booker and Victor Gaskin; drummers Louis Hayes and Roy McCurdy; saxophonists Charles Lloyd and Yusef Lateef.

The sextet was noteworthy towards the end of the 1960s for achieving crossover success with pop audiences, but doing it without making artistic concessions.
