A rare collection of previously unissued recordings by legendary jazz saxophonist Cannonball Adderley is becoming more accessible thanks to two small jazz labels seeking to keep jazz history alive.
RIP #NancyWilson , the wonderful singer & civil rights activist whose supple voice & graceful sense of swing bridged Jazz & Pop on many thru the 1960-70s. We're putting on the classic "Nancy Wilson & Cannonball Adderley" in her honor today:
We asked some fans of the label to make a playlist of their favorite Blue Note tracks & here's a great one from @aquadrunkard that takes you from Cannonball Adderley's timeless "Autumn Leaves" to Ornette Coleman's freewheeling "Dee Dee" #80DaysOfBlueNote
Weeks after recording "Milestones" for Columbia, Miles Davis & Cannonball Adderley went into Rudy Van Gelder's studio on March 9, 1958 with Hank Jones, Sam Jones & Art Blakey to record "Somethin' Else" (Blue Note 1595) #80DaysOfBlueNote #TheFinestInJazz
