“This tribute band, led by his former drummer Louis Hayes… preserves his spirit faithfully, and with force.” - newyorktimes.com

A drummer’s drummer, Louis Hayes has been keeping rhythm for over 50 years. With his unforgiving energetic swing, he’s played with modern jazzers Horace Silver, Oscar Peterson, John Coltrane, Freddie Hubbard and Cannonball Adderley. In salute to the beloved Cannonball, Hayes offers the Cannonball Adderley Legacy, a relentless swinging group that plays with authentic harmonic cohesion adding to the many bands this hard-driving rhythm has led over the jazz decades.
