When Julian “Cannonball” Adderley released Somthin’ Else 60 years ago, he secured his position in the top echelon of jazz. Cannonball was already riding high as a member of Miles Davis’ band, and this influential album helped establish Cannonball as a leader and an artist with his own style, distinct from the legions of Charlie Parker imitators. In what would have been his 90th year, we’re proud to present a celebration of Cannonball’s life and music, with a top-flight band featuring two Cannonball experts, saxophonist Henry Solomon — SJW alum and former SJW Mentor Fellow — and drummer Roy McCurdy, who was himself a member of Cannonball’s band from 1965 – 1975, until the master alto saxophonist passed away.
