JAZZ JUGGERNAUTS, THE COOKERS, RETURN TO THE BRIDE
We’re pleased to welcome back jazz supergroup, the Cookers, who will play the main stage for the second time this Saturday, November 1st at 8pm.
It’s been a busy autumn for the New-York based septet. Since the end of August, the Cookers have been travelling throughout the states and overseas in France, Norway, and Serbia, playing original tracks from their brand new album, Time and Time Again.
Released September 16th via Motema Music, Time and Time Again is the Cookers fourth full-length LP, a follow up to 2012’s critically-acclaimed Believe. This new collection finds the Cookers doing what they do best: avant post-bop fueled by the band’s collective history and expertise in the hard bop and jazz stylings that pervaded the 60s and 70s.
Joining the band for their second Painted Bride performance is alto saxophonist Jaleel Shaw, who will sit in for Donald Harrison. A Philly native, Shaw graduated from Philadelphia High School for the Creative and Performing Arts before heading off to Berkeley School of Music. Since then, Shaw has played with the likes of Roy Hargrove, the Mingus Big Band, and recently, Tom Harrell’s Color of a Dream band. Shaw’s solo work has also garnered the attention of The New York Times and Downbeat Magazine, among others.
Aside from Jaleel Shaw, Cookers attendees can expect to see the same legendary lineup that sold out the Painted Bride in 2013. With over 200 years of jazz playing experience between them, the Cookers’ front line is David Weiss (trumpet), Eddie Henderson (trumpet), Billy Harper (tenor sax), and Jaleel Shaw (alto sax). The rhythm section is Cecil McBee (bass), George Cables (piano), and Billy Hart (drums).
The Cookers will play Painted Bride stage on Saturday, November 1st at 8pm. Tickets are going fast—$30 in advance, $25 day of show. 30% off for Painted Bride Members. Click here to buy your tickets now!
