Cory Weeds Quartet feat. Brian Charette

CORY WEEDS has often been referred as the ‘hardest working man in jazz business’. Whether producing records for his Cellar Music Group, unearthing never before heard gems on his Reel To Real Recordings label, escorting people around New York City on his New York With Weeds tour, booking local and international artists at Frankie’s Jazz Club in Vancouver, and serving as the artistic director of Jazz @ The Bolt, he is always at the forefront of the best in jazz.

Of all the jazz exploits that Weeds finds himself involved in, the one thing he loves more than any of them is playing the saxophone. He has released over 20 albums as a leader, featuring himself alongside some of the finest in jazz such as Jeff Hamilton, Harold Mabern, Joey Defranceco, David Hazeltine, Eric Alexander, Mike LeDonne, and Peter Bernstein.

New York City organist/pianist BRIAN CHARETTE has established himself as a leading voice in modern jazz. Charette is a Hammond USA endorsed artist. His latest record Jackpot on Cellar Music features drummer Bill Stewart, guitarist Ed Cherry, and Weeds on saxophone. Jackpot received 4 stars in Downbeat and was on the Jazzweek Charts for several months, peaking at #9.

He is the recipient of numerous awards, and he travels the world continuously lending his compositional and improvisational talents to musicians and groups around the globe.

Weeds and Charette come together for this special performance to celebrate Jackpot, and a newly released archival recording by legendary organist Brother Jack McDuff called Ain’t No Sunshine. The quartet is rounded out by JOHN LEE on drums and DAVE SIKULA on guitar.
