CORY WEEDS QUARTET with guest HARRY ALLEN
Time 8:00 pm
The inventive, swinging tenor saxophonist Harry Allen has graced countless stages and recordings over the past 25 years both as a sideman and a leader. He’s made more than 40 albums under his own name for the Japanese market alone and any attempt to patch together a résumé would be a futile exercise. Expressive saxophonist Cory Weeds has released 10 records as a leader on his Cellar Live label. The current CD, This Happy Madness with The Jeff Hamilton Trio reached #3 on the Jazz Week Charts. His music is rooted in the tradition of Hard Bop and he swings with authority. Join Allen and Weeds for tenor madness! With Tony Foster piano, Russ Botten bass and Joe Poole drums. Tonight's concert is dedicated to the late Emily Goetz. Emily passed away in May 2015, following a prolonged time living with cancer. She was a regular at jazz events around Vancouver and especially Cory Weeds' Cellar Jazz Club. She is sorely missed.
