Cory Weeds/Julian MacDonough Quintet Play the music of Tina Brooks
Rare Recordings Revisited
Best known for his work for Blue Note Records between 1958 and 1961, saxophonist Tina Brooks recorded primarily as a sideman with Kenny Burrell, Freddie Hubbard, Jackie McLean, Freddie Redd, and Jimmy Smith. But he also recorded five sessions of his own for Blue Note. The first session was in the spring of 1958 with promising young trumpeter Lee Morgan alongside seasoned professionals such as Sonny Clark, Doug Watkins, and Art Blakey. Despite the calibre of the players, Minor Move was not released for more than two decades and after Brooks had died. Three of his four other sessions (Street Singer, Back to the Tracks, and The Waiting Game) also did not appear during his lifetime. The exception was True Blue, a session recorded in 1960 with Freddie Hubbard, Duke Jordan, Sam Jones, and Art Taylor.
In this special tribute an all-star quintet recreate the music from across all Tina’s recordings featuring Cory Weeds tenor saxophone, Chris Davis trumpet, John Hansen piano, Michael Glynn bass, and Julian MacDonough drums.
