The Cookers draws it’s inspiration from the seminal Blue Note Records release, The Night of the Cookers, by combining some of the greatest musicians from that era with some of this generations more fiery players. While giants in their own right, the members of this ensemble have performed and/or recorded with essentially every jazz great of the past half century including Miles Davis, Sonny Rollins, Max Roach, Art Blakey, Horace Silver, Jackie McLean, Herbie Hancock, Freddie Hubbard, Wayne Shorter, Joe Henderson, Lee Morgan, Dexter Gordon, Dizzy Gillespie, and Roy Haynes, to name just a few. Welcome The Cookers with open arms for their first ever performance in Portland.
