“A bebop supergroup!” – NPR
The Cookers – the name comes from the title of Freddie Hubbard’s classic 1965 Blue Note recording, Night of the Cookers – aptly describes this group of dynamic jazz artists: Billy Harper – tenor saxophone; Eddie Henderson – trumpet; David Weiss – trumpet; Donald Harrison – saxophones/flute; George Cables – piano; Cecil McBee – bass; and Billy Hart – drums. Drawing on a collective experience covering decades of music making, The Cookers bring the timeless sound of early ’60s post-bop creativity into the 21st Century. Their soon to be released album, Time and Time Again (Sept. 16 release date) is an exciting follow up to their three previous recordings, Believe, Cast the First Stone and Warriors.
