I spoke with Nancy Wilson recently (January 20th) and she talked about her
relationship with Cannonball and Nat Adderley and in that conversation
mentioned Nat Adderley Jr. She said that after all the years of doing pop
music he has grown tired of it and is focusing on doing straight ahead jazz.
She said he wants to emulate his father and his uncle.
