Pre-concert talk at 1pm with The Cookers (free to ticket holders)

“This really is the best working band anywhere at the moment” is the judgement of Jazzwise and who can argue against a line-up that includes some of the scene’s most distinguished bearers of the hard bop message.

With over 250 years of collective experience, this is a band of bandleaders who have also brought their exceptional solo talents to over 1000 recordings, contributing to the music of Herbie Hancock, Max Roach, Art Blakey and a host of others.

After seven years together, The Cookers have just released their fourth album, ‘Time and Time Again’, a rollercoaster ride that evokes memories of the jazz of the 50s and 60s, whilst continuing to provide proof that this is music with lasting energy and life-affirming spirit.
