Adderley earned his B.A. degree in African American studies from Yale University in 1977. In 1981, Adderley became Luther Vandross' music director, arranging, writing and producing songs throughout Vandross' career. Adderley arranged "Here and Now", "If Only for One Night", "Creepin", "Never Too Much", and "Love Won't Let Me Wait" for Vandross, among others.
