Cannonball Adderley interview - Part II

Here is the second half of my interview with Cannoball Adderley. Sorry about the abrupt ending, but the only thing that went missing was an exchange of "thank yous."

Here's a link to Part 1 of this interview.

I appreciate any comments you might have.

  1. This was a great interview. Mr. Adderley was a true advocate of the Music. His comments regarding "Black Pride", and his ability to state a common sense opinion needs to be replayed to the people of the World in 2010.


  2. Thanks a lot for sharing this interview, he was always a very articulate spokesman for jazz.
    And of course one of Bird's greatest disciples.
