Hard Bop alto saxophonist and former Florida native, Julian "Cannonball" Adderley, first came to national attention through his association as a member of the iconic Miles Davis band in 1957. While having recorded his first album as a leader in 1955 for Savoy Records, it was his association with Riverside Records in 1958 that led to the launch of his career as a leader. The Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra Quintet will be delving into the critical body of recording from the 1958 titled album Portrait of Cannonball to his 1962 recording titled Cannonball's Bossa Nova.
