A MONTH OF CANNONBALL ADDERLEY NIGHT FIVE…
THE BIG FINALE!!!

Each week in March a different Cannonball Adderley album will be performed live at the Jazz Record Art Collective (JRAC). Our fifth and final installment is the Mike Smith Quartet performing Adderley’s 1959 release CANNONBALL TAKES CHARGE. The evening will also feature an installation and live painting from visual artist Lewis Achenbach.

“In 1959, Cannonball Adderley recorded one of two quartet record, the other one being Know what I Mean? Cannonball Takes Charge was recorded in NY at Reeves Sound Studio. Tracks 1, 2, and 3 were recorded on April 27th, 1959, track 4 on April 23rd, and all others on May 12, 1959. The record features Wynton Kelly on Piano, Paul Chambers on bass and Jimmy Cobb on drums. Three great musicians cannonball played with in the Miles’ sextet. Adderley switches things up by adding the great Percy Heath who was a member of the Modern Jazz Quartet and his young brother, Albert “Tootie” Heath on drums. With so much grit, there’s a reason this record in entitled “Cannonball Takes Charge.”
