Pat Harbison and Damani Phillips, jazz professors at Indiana University and the University of Iowa will team up to present a concert focusing on the music of the legendary Adderly brothers quintet.
The story of the Adderly brother’s success
reads like a movie script. They could have gone to any club in New York that
night in June, 1955, but they entered one in Greenwich Village; Cafe Bohemia,
where musicians hung out and jazz writers salivated at the prospect of seeing
something special. The brothers entered Cafe Bohemia as unknowns, but before
the night was over, Julian "Cannonball" Adderley and his brother Nat
set the New York jazz world ablaze with dazzling performances that caused
mouths to drop and word to spread. Cannonball would become one of the greatest
alto saxophonists in jazz history, while Nat would write some of jazz's
best-known standards. Together, their soulful jazz would spark a change in
Harbison and Phillips will
be appearing with Jason Danielson on keyboards, bassist David Altemeier, and
drummer Ryan Lee.
