Here is a complete a list as I could gather of nicknames of famous jazz musicians
. You may have heard some of these, and not known who they refer to. Some of the nickname
s are usually incorporated into the name (e.g. Julian 'Cannonball' Adderly, rarely called just 'Cannonball'), but I left the nicknames on their own.
If I forgot anyone, /msg me. Thx.
Also, some artists may have been noded under different names than the one written here. I have tried to pipeline what I know, but I haven't checked all the links. If you find a faulty link, /msg me. (e.g. Julian Adderly could have been noded as 'Julian Adderly', 'Cannonball Adderly', 'Julian Edward Adderly', 'Julian Cannonball Adderly', 'Julian "Cannonball" Adderly'..... you get the idea).
