Nat Adderley Thanksgiving Special

Nat Adderley was a top flight trumpet and cornet player. But he spent most of his career in the shadow of his older brother, saxophonist Julian “Cannonball” Adderley. Nat ran the band business and wrote many of their hits. When Cannonball died, Nat carried on, not only with the band, but also with the family tradition of educating the next generation.

Tune in to WNCU on Thursday, November 25, at 4pm to hear NPR’s Jazz Profiles on Nat Adderley.
