Jazz icons, colleagues and kindred spirits Billy Harper, Eddie Henderson, George Cables, Cecil McBee and Billy Hart forge a world-class union on their auspicious debut for Jazz Legacy Productions. Along with band leader and trumpeter David Weiss, they are collectively known as The Cookers. Taking their group name from a 1965 Blue Note album by the late, great trumpeter Freddie Hubbard (The Night of the Cookers: Live at Club La Marchal), this exciting new all-star septet summons up an aggressive mid ’60s spirit on Time and Time Again, 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.
