* The Cookers (Livestream)

May 30, 2021 @ 5:00 pm
Keystone Korner Baltimore
Link to Come
$10 (Plus $1 Fees)

This septet is mostly comprised of what you might call musicians’ musicians. Pianist George Cables, tenor saxman Billy Harper, trumpeter Eddie Henderson, bassist Cecil McBee and D.C. native drum master Billy Hart – they’re all veterans of the late hard-bop scene and its aftermath, and each one is considered a legend by many musicians. But somehow, public prominence has escaped them. The Cookers is a group that in recent years has tried—and generally succeeded—to restore their place in the public eye.

The show will be broadcast from the Keystone Korner club in Baltimore.

The link for the stream will be sent after you’ve purchased a ticket.
