Volume One

The Cookers Quintet

The Cookers Quintet are a Toronto-based jazz combo, with a sound 
firmly rooted in the '50s and '60s hard bop movement.
Born out of a weekly residency where
the group cut their teeth on the classic,
hard swinging music of Horace Silver,
Art Blakey and Hank Mobley, it didn't take long before they
were writing tunes of their own. Volume One collects those songs.
"The Ramble" pays homage to Horace Silver's "Swingin' the Samba"
with its latin vibe. "Obligatory Blues" is anything but, showcasing a
Lee Morgan-esque boogie feel and a great tag-team lead line.
With its lilting melody and ¾ time signature, "Crosstalk"
feels like a lost outtake from Miles's classic quintet.
"Blues to Booker" is a slow swinging number dedicated to
another source of inspiration, Booker Ervin.
