THE COOKERS featuring: Billy Harper-tenor saxophone, Eddie Henderson-trumpet, David Weiss-trumpet, Donald Harrison-alto saxophone, George Cables-piano, Cecil McBee-bass, Billy Hart-drums
Experience counts, especially in jazz. The more time musicians spend interpreting tunes and interacting with others, the more articulation an audience can expect. You can hear the fruits of such work in the expressive language The Cookers - this exciting all-star septet summons up an aggressive mid ‘60s spirit with a potent collection of expansive post-bop originals marked by all the requisite killer instincts and pyrotechnic playing expected of some of the heaviest hitters on the scene today.
Each and every one of the muscians comprising The Cookers are leaders in their own right and have also graced stages all over the world with other jazz heavyweights such as Art Blakey, Sonny Rollins, Max Roach, Joe Henderson, to name a few.
“Player for player, there’s
no better working band in jazz than The Cookers.”
-Andrew Gilbert, The Boston Globe
“This is the greatest jazz super-band working.”
-Charles L. Latimer, Detroit Metro Times
