Jive Samba

This song is by Dianne Reeves and appears on the album Quiet After The Storm (1994).

"Hipness is not a state of mind but a fact of life"

He used to say
A big man with a big alto sound
Folks affectionately called him Cannonball
"A teacher, historian, a jazz griot" someone wrote
Cannon could blow a sermon with every note
Departed at the young age of forty-three plus three
But not without leaving us a rich jazz legacy
