Cary Ginell: The Life of Cannonball Adderley

Wednesday, February 26, 2014 - 2:30pm

“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.
