Who Cares
Cannonball Adderley Lyrics


Who cares if the sky cares
To fall in the sea?
Who cares what banks fail in Yonkers,
Long as you've got a kiss that conquers?

Why should I care?
Life is one long jubilee,
So long as I care for you
And you care for me!

Tommaso Starace Music

My all time favourite saxophonist!
His tone is so expressive, full and rich at the bottom of the register and at the top ( something not easy on alto sax!). Amazing sense of time, swing and an infinite musical box of original ideas. Long live Cannonball!!

Tom D

Cannonball is lyrical as ever, but Bill's solo takes the prize for me here. Just sublime.

Darren Gagliardi

Tom D couldn’t agree more.

Nick Cicchese

You could not be more correct. 4:55 to the closing of his last chorus... I have replayed those 12 seconds so many times. Brilliant phrasing

Katrien Hermans

Percy Heath (bass) and Connie Kay (drums) !
