Description

The Cookers have each made an estimable mark on the jazz world as both leaders and sidemen since the 1960s. Founded by acclaimed trumpeter David Weiss, the band is made up of a dizzying array of jazz giants. Fiery tenor saxophonist Billy Harper is a veteran of Art Blakey’s Jazz Messengers and led a succession of seminal recordings including the iconic Capra Black. New Orleans-born tenor giant Donald Harrison developed his powerful approach with drummers Art Blakey and Roy Haynes, and is a major figure representing Crescent City jazz at its best. Audacious trumpeter Eddie Hendersongained fame as part of Herbie Hancock’s influential electric Mwandishi group, eventually releasing over 20 sessions.
