Julian "Cannonball" Adderley: "An Introduction to Jazz"

9:00pm - 12:33am

This recording is a Jazz Show tradition and we present this every September to welcome back the school year. It is a brief history of Jazz narrated by the great alto saxophonist/bandleader Cannonball Adderley. He takes us through the early forms of the music and up to when this album was recorded in 1960. It is interspersed with musical examples. Despite the changes in the world and music since 1960 much of this recording is still relevant as it gives one a simple history of the music and makes one realise that certain traditions of this unique American music arfe still carried on today. Sit back and enjoy a little entertainment and education with Mr. Adderley. Next week we will present "What is Jazz" narrated by Leonard Bernstein.
