The Cookers

The Jazz Supergroup: Billy Harper (Tenor Sax), Eddie Henderson (Trumpet), David Weiss(Trumpet), Craig Handy (Alto Sax), George Cables (Piano), Cecil McBee, Billy Hart (Drums). The name Night of the Cookers is a reference to the 1965 recorded trumpet summit between Lee Morgan (Freddie Hubbard) and Billy Hart (Drums). The Cookers are an old-time supergroup that includes George Cables on piano and Billy Harper on tenor and alto saxophones. Cecil McBee plays bass and Eddie Henderson, David Weiss and Craig Handy play trumpet, flugelhorn, and flute. Cast the First Stone was a collaboration between The Cookers and Cecil McBee. They had an idea for the sonic approach that they wanted and looked back at their music collections to find vibrant pieces. The result is an unforgettable album full of inspiration, moxie, and brilliance.
