“Player for player, there’s no better working band in jazz” (Boston Globe). The Cookers is an all-star septet comprised of Billy Harper (tenor saxophone), Cecil McBee (bass), George Cables (piano), Eddie Henderson (trumpet), Billy Hart (drums), David Weiss (trumpet), and Donald Harrison (alto saxophone). Their music resonates with the depth and beauty that only 250 years of combined experience can bring.
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
