Julian "Cannonball" Adderley

Profile:
The Cannonball Adderley Quintet featured Cannonball on alto sax and his brother Nat Adderley on cornet.

Adderley's first quintet was not very successful; however, after leaving Miles Davis' group, he formed another, again with his brother, which enjoyed more success.

The new quintet (which later became the Cannonball Adderley Sextet), and Cannonball's other combos and groups, included such noted musicians as:

* pianists Bobby Timmons, Victor Feldman, Joe Zawinul, Hal Galper, Michael Wolff, George Duke, Wynton Kelly, Bill Evans
* bassists Ray Brown, Sam Jones, Walter Booker, Victor Gaskin
* drummers Louis Hayes, Roy McCurdy
* saxophonists Charles Lloyd, Yusef Lateef.

The sextet was noteworthy towards the end of the 1960s for achieving crossover success with pop audiences, but doing it without making artistic concessions
