Burnside Album Details

Cookers, The, Warriors

"This CD is called Warriors because this is how I look at these great men," writes trumpeter and band leader Weiss in the liner notes. "They came up at a time when this music was at it's most vital and exciting and was part of something epic and historic yet they are still going strong, playing with the same freedom, passion and intensity that is what encompasses this great music." Jazz veterans, 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 trumpeter David Weiss saxophonist Craig Handy, they are collectively known as The Cookers.
