2022 Burlington Discover Jazz Festival

Jake Whitesell's Cannonball Quintet

Church Street in front of City Hall


Alto saxophonist Jake Whitesell pays tribute to the Cannonball Adderley Quintet with Brian Boyes (trumpet), Mike Hartigan (piano), John Rivers (bass), and Geza Carr (drums). The group presents a variety of fun and exciting music from the repertoire of renowned hard-bop alto saxophonist Julian "Cannonball" Adderley's classic quintet, with compositions by Cannonball, his brother and band-mate, cornetist Nat Adderley, and other collaborators, such as pianists Joe Zawinul, Bobby Timmons, and Victor Feldman. The Cannonball Adderley Quintet helped popularize "soul jazz," with music rooted in blues, gospel, bebop, and soul/funk.
