190 pgs.
Hal Leonard Books, Publ.

Julian "Cannonball" Adderley was a man who combined a gargantuan technique on the alto saxophone with pride in his heritage, a devotion to educating young people, and an insatiable musical curiosity to bridge gaps between jazz and popular music in the 1960s and '70s.He refused to be typecast, and his work with Miles Davis on the landmark "Kind of Blue" album furthered his reputation as a unique stylist. But his greatest fame came with his own quintet's breakthrough engagement at San Francisco's Jazz Workshop in 1959, which launched the popularization of soul jazz in the 1960s. "Walking Tall" is the captivating story of Cannonball's musical legacy.
