From my first memories of life, jazz has always been a constant .My father sat in front of his record player with his stacks of vinyl on the floor and a glass of Chivas and grapefruit juice in his hand.I would sit and listen while looking at the beautiful album covers of my people. My father passed away too many years ago,but Mercy Mercy Mercy remains in my thoughts along with so many other songs from this man.As an adolescent the sounds of the Happy People were and are still my favorite as an adult, from Mr. Cannonball Adderley. My children will know his music as the sounds become a part of their lives. His beautiful music only keeps getting better.

I have been an avid Cannonball Adderly fan since I was a kid! The first music I heard was a collaberation of Cannonball with Nancy Wilson and I really like when he and Miles Davis played together! Since I have satelite radio I don\'t purchase many CDs of late. My favorite of all times is \"Autumn Leaves\"!!

Wow!  Thank you for this exceptional site!  I've been organizing my digital collection, attempting to match album covers (iTunes is horribly inadequate in this regard) with albums, and listing all albums by the year of recording.  In short, it's a slow process, but I was able to fly right through the Cannonball stuff (particularly separating the compilations into their original albums!) thanks to this information packed site.  Truly outstanding!

I have been a fan since 1959 and "Dis here". I was an  avid fan throughout his carrer.  I loved his "commerical" hits, his ballads, his "downhome blues as well as the more progressive pieces.  I saw  him perhaps a dozen times, the last being in 1975 in Feburary, several months before his untimely death>  Subsequently I've written and published two articles and I am collective material for a series of essays tentively entitled; I Remember Ball" Or Them Dirty Blues.
I would be interested in sharing with others, material, records, etc., about the late Mr. Adderley.

Cannon became a great friend, he was a "lovable" cat.

In 1971, I opened for Cannon and his band in Denver Colorado at a place called Marvelous Marvs. I was a young singer/songwriter/guitarist from New York touring to promote my first record - 'A Picture' by Allan Thomas on Sire Records. Cannon, Nat and the band took a liking to me and we became friends. Later Julian invited me to sing improvisational vocals with him and the quintet at the recording of the 'Soul Of The Bible' sessions. He also invited me to sing improvisational vocals at the Troubadour and Lighthouse clubs in L.A. The song that I sang and that we created on the spot is called 'Behold' and as I was on contract to Sire Records at the time, Cannon and Nat elected to give me a pseudonym -Arthur Charma. My real name is Allan Thomas and I am releasing my fourth album of original tunes next week.
Cannonball touched me deeply, and gave me confidence to do things I didn\'t even know I had in me to do. My love and respect for him floourishes as much today as it did then.
Thanks for keeping the Cannonball flame alive.

As a young tenor saxophonist growing up musically in philadelphia i had the opportunity to meet Cannonball out on the street,returning to the club after a break on his gig, along with his brother Nat and Yuseff Lateef. they were playing at the old showboat lounge in town and a trombonist friend and i were on our way to our 2nd jazz gig ever not too far away. Cannonball was so friendly and encouraging and even offered to sneak us into the club but we\'d have to stand in a broom closet because we were too young to be in the club at 15 and 16 yrs old at night. my friend and i were all like star struck and confused and nervous about how we should address Cannonbal.\"should we say Mr adderly or mr cannonball or what?\"
he was just so great to us. we declined the offer to be snuck inside and we had to get to our gig anyway :-)
he is probably the only alto player i ever dug.. being a tenor player and all that. i still miss him. this is my first visit to this site. i just all of a sudden decided to \"google\' his name after hearing a tune of his on the local jazz station here in town tonight. im off to explore the stie in depth. thanks!

Cannonball Adderley was a great musician. He had an enormous impact on my life. With Miles Davis in the 1950s and also as a bandleader with his brother Nat Adderley. He created music that you always go back to. The album sleeves on their own are like old friends. It would have been great to meet him.

My Father came to Fort Lauderdale after Cannonball had long left. All we know of this great man of Jazz is what was in the press and a few friends that knew Cannonball at Dillard. I had the priviledge of meeting with a cousin of Julian and Nat Adderley a few years ago in South Carolina and we discovered that both of our families originated from the same Island in the Bahamas. I have listen to his Album Mercy Mercy over and over and I can feel the passion in the music. Too bad a lot of folks do not know of this great talent now days.

I signed this guest book about a year ago and my love for Cannonball's playing has grown all the more stronger. I was extremely excited when i found "Money in the Pocket" (while i was in Seattle Washington), a recording that was just released that Cannonball made in March 1966 at "The Club" in Chicago and this one was actually recorded live at "The Club". His vitality and charisma pour out of this CD and it is one of my new favourites. I am currently travelling the west coast of the USA and i strongly intend to visit 'The Jazz Workshop' in San Francisco and 'The Lighthouse' in Hermosa Beach California, just to stand in the place where these phenominal recordings were made will mean so much to me, because these were the recordings that made me start playing alto sax, and i will never stop.

Gilles, thanks for all you do to promote Cannonball's music. I am one of Cannon's greatest fans and have transcribed more of his solos than anyone in the world. You can get a little taste of them on my site www.docstewart.com. I will gradually release a series of books of Cannon's solo transcriptions organized by year and session date. My transcriptions are incredibly accurate and include articulations and phrasing (which takes as much time to deduce as transcribing the notes). Anyway, keep up the good work!

I'm a Brazilian jazz journalist since the mid-fifties and always was a huge fan of Cannonball Adderley. He was one of the most impressive altoists I heard in my life and appreciate all his records. His only Brazilian appearance was in 1972 with Nat Adderley, George Duke, Walter Booker and Roy McCurdy and was a great success.
Congratulations for this really amazing site honnoring his life and his immortal music.

My name is Christian McBride, and I'd like to thank you for celebrating the life and  music of Cannonball Adderley. Although I'm a bass player, Cannonball has touched me much deeper than any other musician. Between you and I, I hope to accomplish with my band as he did with his - to be very forward thinking and modern, but still listenable and very rooted in the blues. I've always felt that Cannonball has NEVER gotten the credit he deserves for being a modernist. Many jazz critics are so self- centered in what THEY think good jazz - and most of them think that abstract jazz is the
"thinking man's" music, and anything rooted in the blues (i.e. What Black people would like) is "elementary". And since Cannonball had many, many hits on the R&B charts in the 60's when no other PURE jazz musicians were quite as commercially successful, I believe the jazz critics wrote him off. I think they STILL do that. More so now than in the 60's, perhaps. Miles Davis gets so much credit for the advent of electric jazz, all those dumb-ass critics need to do is go back and listen to any Cannonball Adderley album (circa "the capitol years"), and they would plainly see that Cannonball was WAY, WAY ahead of Miles in the electric department.

Anyway, I thank you for your website. I wish you the best.

I am, primarily, looking for an old recording of Jerome Kern's "The Way You Look Tonight," which Adderley did on an album called "Cannonball En Route." However, since Parker there really have been only two alto players to get close one is Lee Konitz but for technical ability the Cannon is the best. To a certain extent we will never hear people like him again or for that matter Gillespie, Eldridge, Hawkins, Young, Webster and many more. The 20th Century was unique for jazz. I know that there are many good musicians around today but that fire and innovation seems to just miss. The saddest element of all this is that the Cannon died far too young just like Parker. These people are desperately needed today.

Coming across your web site for the very first time, I´ve been looking at its many bits and pieces for one and a half hours - listening to a live version of Sack O´Woe just now. Gilles, je te remercies for the extraordinary efforts you must have taken to represent the life and music of one of the greatest Jazz musicians ever. It was Kind of Blue that first made me aware of Cannonball, Nils Lundgren´s congenial Paint it Blue eventually made me have a closer look, and today, whenever I feel a little depressed, I listen to one of Cannonball´s live recordings and the warm-hearted tone of his voice introducing the next piece and his soulful play cheer me up again. So did your web site ...

This is true dedication to the spirit of Cannonball- the greatest alto saxophonist ever. I admire your effort to create and maintain this site. Keep it going. There are so many across the world to support your work.
Cannonball was the greatest altoist ever. I first heard him in 1962.After that I have heard zillion other altoists but he remains the greatest for so many reasons but above all for his inventiveness, his freshness and his fire.

Cannonball was the hottest,the coolest, the sweetest, the ballsiest, the smoothest and just the most wonderful alto sax player to listen to. His unique style and sound will live in my mind forever.I was turned on to him in the late 1950s when I first began to listen to jazz and collect.But the greatest experience was when I lived in Japan(my Dad was with the American Embassy)and we went to see the band at Kosei-Nenkin Hall on July 19, 1963. I was near the front left.And one of the most enlightening things for me, as well as for many Japanese ,was to see a white guy (Zawinul) playing with all those black cats. I remember one Japanese friend asking me if it was alright for so many "Negroes" to play with a white man in the United States.It was so wierd to contemplate this reverse integration.Just that alone taught alot about racism and tolerance.
Finally,I just want to say what a great site you have.It is on my list of favorites immediately.
Keep jazz alive.Best Regards.

Thanks for the site, its really great.
I love your ability to transcribe some of his solos, as he was the best sax player ever, in my opinion, even better then Bird. He's influenced me so much, I've tried to pattern my own style of Alto-playing from him...so my nickname in the Jazz band I play with is "Cannonball" ,though of course I'm a far cry from the REAL Cannonball.
Thanks, keep it up, get some of his "Live at the Club" solos up if you can.

Just wanted to compliment you on a great site.  It's always inspiring to see homage paid to the masters of our music.  I always tell people, "I'd like to play tenor the way Cannonball played Alto".  Got to see Ball in the mid sixties...I was still a teenager...and along with seeing Trane and Miles it shaped my life.
 Keep up the good work and thanks

I knew Ed Adderley as he was called by my parents.
There were plenty of times he would come over to my parents house,since we lived around the corner from him in Ft. Lauderdale. He influenced me to start out playing the clarinet first then go on to the saxophone, as opposed to the trumpet. He said, because of my teeth structure the trumpet would not be good for me.
I played clarinet in the band through high school (Dillard High) and in college.
The web site is great.

I love the man, and reckon he had the deepest and most versatile sound to appear from an Alto horn in history. His technique is so good, you can't hear it, and his timing and poise never seems to falter. Plus, and I challenge a lot of my friends to check this out, he has the biggest entrance to a solo of anyone - he is always straight in there, right at the top.
Most soloists kind of ease their way into a solo, but this man just blows down the front door, and proceeds to ransack your house ! I'm not just talking about the big, gutsy tracks either, because on a ballad he'll do the same, but with butterfly wings. Only Bird in my humble opinion could do that in a similar way. I'm especially keen to find out what other recordings there are around about his Inside Straight "period" (whether hat's before or after that album I don't know )because I love the entire band's edge and the technique and finesse they bring to funk - very loose wrists, still kind of Blue Note, and risk-taking. And the other members of that combo- what other projects were they on, what other recordings did they make? Basically, although I love to hear him in hard bop and ballad mode too, I'd love to track down any Cannonball appearances where he's sitting on top of a soul jazz/funk arrangement -so can anyone help out here? These tunes don't seem to turn up in my second-hand shop much! I'd be greatly appreciative.
Thanks,Tom

I can clearly recall a period in my young life where I absolutely "hated" the music that my older brothers subjected me too. As a young lad in South Africa, jazz was the main diet in our household.
My father naturally was the person who introduced his boys to jazz and the wonders of a quartet.
Who would have thought that 20 years later I would be able to remember just about every composition done by the "Cannibal" and musicians of his generation. Needless to say, jazz is what I collect and I have been trying to find a site that would have close to everything that Adderley, Miles and the like have recorded. I usually don't curse but, this is a rare moment...This site is the SHIT !! bloodly beautiful.
It's going to be my reference guide for everything that I want to learn about Cannonball. Thank you a million times over for putting together a site that is going to make my search for Cannon's music a lot more enjoyable.

In my opinion Cannonball is highly underrated. He deserves a place among the greatest, not only because his own splendid playing deeply rooted in blues and soul music, but also for his band, and showing the world that popular jazz music also can be highly artistic on a high level.

Comments: Gilles. MAN ,Crazy huge site ! hanks for all of the effort that went into this. I'm psyched on the transcriptions! When I was 14 I was listening to a lot of jazz " trane, bird, miles" and not GETTING it...until I heard Mercy! Mercy! Mercy! Live at the Club (which was actually recorded at a studio in LA I later learned). The blues -based riff solos on that album gave me a foundation to latch on to and opened the door to all my future listening. I came to your site cause I need a new mouthpiece for my alto and I was thinking "I wonder if I can find out what mouthpiece Cannonball played on..."
I love this man's music.
Thanks again. Drop a line if you're ever in SF.

Congratulations on creating a living tribute to a great musician and an important social activist.

Je te suis tres reconnaissant! (the extent of my French) Thank you, thank you for this wealth of information of what may be the most gifted jazz saxophonists that has ever lived. A site of this magnitude is very rare and I commend you. I am a performing saxophonist in the United States and love to play both jazz and legit styles of music. My professor too was a student of the great Marcel Mule (the father of classical saxophone). Thank you again for this treasure. His spirit lives on!

Hello! This is a wonderful website! I am an alto player from Cleveland, Ohio and a HUGE Cannonball fan. This is the only Cannon site I have found, and I have looked all over. Your record collection is quite impressive, and to be honest, you are the first person I've met that has more Cannonball than I do... YIKES. Anyhow, I would welcome the opportunity to speak or write with you personally. I have several titles you don't, as well as some rare recordings I didn't even know existed till I found them. I would welcome an exchange of dubbed copies of these albums for both of us. While I want originals and continue to hunt, I really want just to hear as much of his work as possible. I also have a collection of over 200 transcribed solos you may be interested in. One last thing, I am looking for Cannonball's book, Play Saxophone like Cannonball Adderley. If you or any visitors have access to one, I would really like an original or photocopy to read. Anyhow, great work.... keep it up!
