The Cookers Release “The Call of the Wild and   Peaceful Heart” on Smoke Sessions Records.
CD Release Party at Birdland September 13-17

The Cookers have released their 5th CD, “The Call of the Wild and Peaceful Heart” on the Smoke Sessions record label. The CD features great new material from Bassist Cecil McBee and we have reworked many “classics” by Billy Harper, Billy Hart and George Cables. The early reviews are in and it’s already been called “hard-bop heaven” and “forward-thinking and packed with stylistic surprises” by THe Times in London. We will be at Birdland in New York September 13-17 for the CD release party and will tour the US in October and Europe and South America in November in support of the release. We will go into more detail about all the tour dates in the next newsletter.
In the meantime, we hope we see you at Birdland this week.

David Weiss September Newsletter
The Cookers to appear at Dizzy’s Club Coca Cola at Jazz at Lincoln Center This Thursday- Sunday September 10-13

As busy as the band has gotten over the last few years, it still seems like we don’t play in New York often enough. In fact, except for a random night here and there, we have not played an extended run in New York in over a year and a half. So, New Yorkers and visitors, we’ve missed you. Please come out this week if you can. We’re beginning to prepare the material for our next recording so we will be debuting a few new pieces as well as playing many of our tried and true favorites.

In the meantime, if you haven’t checked out these “behind the scenes” videos about the making of our latest CD, “Time and Time Again” please do so.
Here’s one about Billy Harper’s composition “Sir Galahad”

And another about Cecil McBee’s composition “Slippin” and Slidin”

Point of Departure is back


Actually we never really went anywhere but we have been pretty quiet as far as recording and touring for a while.
This is a band I formed in 2006 and like my previous bands, The New Jazz Composers Octet and my Sextet, was formed in part to utilize some of the new talent I saw emerging in New York at the time. While known to the world to varying degrees at the time, they (J.D. Allen, Nir Felder, Matt Clohesy and Jamire Williams) have all gone on to become quite established musicians out here. As I said, the band has not really gone anywhere as we have been performing at a local club in New York, Fat Cat, once or twice a month for the last 3 or 4 years. During this time, we have workshopped new material, tried out new band members, experimented with adding a second guitar and have really developed as a band. The time has come to document the fruits of our labor and we have begun to record a new CD (our first time in the studio since 2008) which we will finish in the coming months and release in the Spring of 2016. The personnel has changed slightly over the last couple of years as we have added an incredible young drummer, Kush Abadey and have also added a second guitarist to the band, another amazing young talent, Ben Eunson. I will keep you posted as the new recording comes close to completion and hopefully we will be coming to a town near you as we tour in support of the new CD.
