Five decades ago, renowned jazz saxophonist Julian “Cannonball” Adderley ushered in a whole new era with what came to be known as soul jazz, featuring famous hit tunes like Mercy, Mercy and Work Song.
In 1964, Adderley released his sextet’s take on tunes from the beloved Broadway musical Fiddler on the Roof, and it became one his most popular albums. Trumpeter Derrick Gardner, Izzy Asper Jazz Artistic Advisor, has assembled a stellar quintet of Winnipeg’s finest along with a handful of New York talent to recreate Cannonball’s brilliant arrangements, including a few of his most famous hits. These jazz takes on Fiddler favourites are guaranteed to have you singing and swinging in your seat!
