“The master hard-bop drummer who set the beat for the legendary Cannonball Adderley bands.” -- The New Yorker
Jeremy Pelt [trumpet]
Vincent Herring [alto saxophone]
Rick Germanson [piano]
Dezron Douglas [bass]
Louis Hayes [drums]
A treasure of American music, Louis Hayes is a drummer whose impeccable feel and infectious swing over the past 60 years can make it seem like he invented jazz drumming. He established himself while still in Detroit as a teenager before historic tenures with Horace Silver, Oscar Peterson, and Cannonball Adderley. He celebrates the legacy of the last of these three giants with this star-studded band featuring alto saxophonist Vincent Herring, trumpeter Jeremy Pelt, pianist Rick Germanson, and bassist Dezron Douglas. This group features all of the soulful hard bop and effusive swing that made Adderley one of the most popular jazz artists of all time and the Cannonball Legacy Band one of the most satisfying jazz groups working today.
