"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.
Taking their group name from a 1965 Blue Note album by the late, great
trumpeter Freddie Hubbard (The Night of the Cookers: Live at Club La
Marchal), this exciting new all-star septet summons up an aggressive mid
'60s spirit on Warriors, a potent collection of expansive post-bop
originals marked by all the requisite killer instincts and pyrotechnic
playing expected of some of the heaviest hitters on the scene today."
