Cookers Discography of CDs


Warriors Warriors CD (2010)
CD $15.35 Buy It  Details
Cookers music CDs The Cookers is an all-star ensemble made up primarily of veteran bandleaders and star soloists, including tenor saxophonist Billy Harper, trumpeters Eddie Henderson and David Weiss, alto saxophonist Craig Handy, pianist George Cables, bassist Cecil McBee, and drummer Billy Hart. The fireworks begin with their sizzling treatment of the late Freddie Hubbard's "The Core," though it is a shame that the liner notes don't specify the order of the trumpet solos. The veterans in the group contributed the remaining songs. Cables' off-center, loping "Spookarella" has a Monk-like humor and playful flute solo by Handy, while the pianist's pretty ballad "Sweet Rita Suite, Pt. 2: Her Soul" is a complex work that the band interprets with finesse, with Handy again a major voice on flute, and lush ensembles by the brass and tenor. Harper penned the funky, insistent "Priestess." His passionate "Carpa Black" is ...
Cast the First Stone Cast the First Stone CD (2010)
CD $17.79 Buy It  Details
Cookers discography The second album by all-star hard bop group the Cookers (named for a legendary Freddie Hubbard live album) is a somewhat more focused, and very slightly more relaxed, effort than the band's debut, 2010's Warriors. Where that album was sharply split between hard-grooving blowouts and simmering ballads, Cast the First Stone is more or less midtempo throughout, allowing the bandmembers to display their command of swing and the blues while still soloing fiercely. With the exception of trumpeter David Weiss, who organized the whole project, the bandmembers all came of age professionally in the 1960s and '70s, with credits on scores of highly regarded albums. Trumpeter Eddie Henderson has many ...

Cookers songs The Cookers' third CD is a bit more diverse than their earlier efforts, though still featuring the same septet (tenor saxophonist Billy Harper, trumpeters Eddie Henderson and David Weiss, alto saxophonist Craig Handy, pianist George Cables, bassist Cecil McBee, and drummer Billy Hart). Harper's staccato "Believe, For It Is True" is an unusual opener, never letting up on the tension, with the focus on intense solos by the composer and Weiss, along with intricate, demanding ensembles. The Cables-penned "Ebony Moonbeams" has an infectious Latin undercurrent, showcasing Henderson's expressive, vocal-like horn, along with strong solos by Handy and the pianist. The sole tune not written by a member of the ensemble ...
