Nat Adderley

Jazz has lost one of its most influential musicians. Composer and cornet player Nat Adderley died last Sunday in a hospital near Tampa, Florida. Adderley was 68 years old and had diabetes. In 1997, one of his legs had been amputated. For many years, he played alongside his brother Julian "Cannonball" Adderley, who was three years his senior. As a composer, Nat Adderley is considered the inventor of "Soul Jazz." Georg Hirsch looks back on Adderley's accomplishments.
