Happy Birthday Cannonball Adderley!

On this day in 1928, jazz sax great Julian "Cannonball" Adderley was born.

He is a great solo artist in his own right, but arguably his biggest achievement that soared him to new heights was when he joined the Miles Davis' band in 1957 and played on the seminal Miles Davis albums Milestones and Kind of Blue.

Wishing Cannonball a great day up in heaven!

This song is from the great 1958 album "Somethin' Else" which features Miles Davis, Art Blakey, Hank & Sam Jones.
