From the venue:

A school teacher until his students encouraged him to pursue his dream, Julian “Cannonball” Adderley’s slick, sweet, and soulful approach to jazz can be heard on everything from Miles Davis’ Kind of Blue to the jazz/funk classic Mercy, Mercy, Mercy.

What is the Jazz Legacy Project?
Created in 2015 after an epiphany Justin Varnes had while teaching Jazz History at Georgia State University, the JLP has an ongoing residency at the Velvet Note jazz club in Atlanta, where they have been selling out their performances for 6 years and counting. Ditching a traditional textbook in favor of playing records and telling stories about the artists to college kids who knew little or nothing about jazz proved to be a big success. It turned out that performing the artist’s music and telling theirstories in between proved to be an even bigger success.
