Kelby MacNayr presents The music of the Cannonball Adderley Quintet
Wed. February 9th 2022 7:00 - 9:00 doors at 5:30 (All Ages)
In the 1950's and 60's the Cannonball Adderley Quintet crisscrossed the United States in two Cadillacs bringing joy, sass and swing to small clubs and concert halls, celebrating and sharing a music equally rooted in the blues, gospel music and in hard swinging bebop.
Arguably one of the most artistically and commercially successful small groups of the era, much of the Adderley Brothers material has become lost and forgotten today. In this special presentation, we bring back to life some of the greatest hits and lesser known treasures of the Adderley Brothers repertoire featuring the wonderful saxophonist Roy Styffe, firey Cuban trumpet player Miguelito Valdes, swinging piano player Tony Genge the driving base of Scott White and the subtle and explosive drumming of Kelby MacNayr!
