"... some of the best composers, arrangers and musicians we have in jazz ... they’re working together in one of the most exciting supergroups we’ve seen in a long, long time." - DownBeat "It's not a dream at all, but a collective of musicians all at their creative peak ... we are lucky these musical spirits are here and like each other enough to be so much more than a jazz answer to an NBA all-star team ... not nearly as much texture there as we get here." - WBGO-FM "The Cookers have grown from a summit of swinging road warriors to become one of the fieriest and hardest-hitting bands on the jazz scene today and easily keep the flame of hard bop brightly burning ... the band consists of five legendary musicians whose credentials read like a who's-who of classic era jazz ... excellent recording, two thumbs up ... must have!" - JazzTimes.com Inspired by the classic hard bop album The Night Of The Cookers, the Cookers is the definition of an all-star band. Each of the seven musicians is a leader in his own right, each with his own keenly individual sound. It’s the combination of these distinct voices, however, that gives the group its unmistakeable power and makes the music so commanding. The Cookers consists of trumpeters David Weiss and Eddie Henderson, tenor saxophonist and co-arranger Billy Harper, pianist George Cables, drummer Billy Hart, bassist Cecil McBee and alto saxophonist Donald Harrison. "We all have our different musical directions and signatures, but we’ve learned through the years through the longevity of playing how to blend together, how to touch each other’s souls through the medium of sound when we play collectively together. I think that’s what makes this band unique." - Eddie Henderson, trumpeter

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
