‘The Cookers blazed in a brainy, heartfelt show at New Orleans Jazz Fest.’
“On a blustery evening at New Orleans Jazz Fest,The Cookers raised temperatures to thermonuclear levels in the WWOZ Jazz Tent. In fact, the brainy, heartfelt American music conjured by this all-star septet tempts me to reach for the “Best of Fest” ribbon with two days left to go at the Fair Grounds.
If you’re not a jazz fan, (or a #BAM fan), this blazing band was also the biggest sleeper of the weekend.
Jazz acolytes knew better. Every artist on stage had already led notable bands, recorded widely, and performed with the grandmasters of improvising music.”
We were pleased to see this really outstanding and enthusiastic review of The Cookers at the New Orleans Jazz Fest from Chris Waddington of NOLA.com- keep up the good work, guys!
