For more than forty years, drummer Louis Hayes has been a catalyst for energetic, unrelenting swing in his self led bands. He started with tenor saxophonist, flautist and oboist Yusef Lateef and went on to rhythmically propel groups led by pianist Horace Silver, legendary saxophonist Cannonball Adderley and pianist Oscar Peterson. These positions were augmented by countless recordings on the Blue Note, Prestige, Riverside and other labels with the likes of John Coltrane, Sonny Rollins, J.J. Johnson, Jackie McLean, Wes Montgomery, Cedar Walton, Dexter Gordon, Woody Shaw, George Benson, Freddie Hubbard, Joe Henderson, McCoy Tyner and the list goes on.

Louis Hayes’ Canonball Adderley Legacy Band re-unites in Vancouver where in 2013 they recorded Live @ Cory Weeds’ Cellar Jazz Club, the bands finest recorded effort thus far. The record rocketed up the Jazz Week Charts hitting #1 for 2 weeks! Don’t miss this high-octane hard bop outfit as they play material from the late Cannonball Adderley, Hayes’ former employer.

Louis Hayes will be joined by an all-star band including:

Vincent Herring – Grammy Award winning saxophonist
Jeremy Pelt – hot trumpeter from the Mingus Big Band
Rick Germanson – NYC pianist & Best of New Talent in 2004 by All About Jazz NYC
Dezron Douglas –one of the most in demand young bassists in jazz today
Presented by Coastal Jazz.
