Experience counts, especially in Jazz. With nearly 10 years together, this exciting all-star septet summons up an aggressive mid-1960’s spirit with a potent collection of post-bop originals with the killer instincts and pyrotechnic playing expected of the heaviest hitters on the scene today. With more than 250 years combined jazz experience and over 1000 recordings, each member of the Cookers is a bandleader in his own right. "Player for player, there’s no better working band in jazz than The Cookers." – Andrew Gilbert, The Boston Globe
