On this day in 1975, Jazz legend Cannonball Adderley died aged only 46.
Despite this, his typically bluesy style and impeccable technique on hundreds of recordings mean that he is still remembered as one of the greatest ever alto-saxophonists.
"There’s no future without the past and anybody who doesn’t really understand where jazz has come from has no right to try to direct where it’s going" - Cannonball Adderley
