Kente Arts Alliance presents The Cookers

Presented by Kente Arts Alliance at New Hazlett Theater

The Cookers is an exciting all-star jazz septet that summons up an aggressive mid ‘60s spirit.  They are considered some of the heaviest hitters on the scene today.  This “super band” consists of Billy Harper, tenor sax; Cecil McBee, bass; George Cables, piano; Eddie Henderson, trumpet; Billy Hart, drums; David Weiss, trumpet; and Donald Harrison, Jr., alto sax.  Characterized as a "super band"  because each member also leads his own highly acclaimed band.

The National Endowment of the Arts has named both Billy Hart and Donald Harrison, Jr., recipients of the NEA Jazz Masters Fellowship for Jazz Advocacy for 2022. The Fellowship is the highest honor that the United States bestows on jazz artists.
