Joe Clark and Darius Hampton, conductors

Jazz saxophonist Julian Edwin “Cannonball” Adderley is perhaps best remembered for the 1966 soul jazz single “Mercy, Mercy, Mercy,” written for him by his keyboardist Joe Zawinul. A member of the Miles Davis Sextet, Adderley appeared on the landmark records Milestones and Kind of Blue, eventually recording his own album in 1958, Somethin’ Else, featuring Davis on trumpet. Over the course of his career, Adderley collaborated with a host of other jazz luminaries including saxophonists Charles Lloyd and Yusef Lateef; pianists Bobby Timmons and Victor Feldman; bassists Sam Jones and Walter Booker; and drummers Louis Hayes and Roy McCurdy. This concert features the music that defined Adderley’s various combos, as well as lesser-known repertoire.
