LET ME BE PERECTLY HANK, I’M EXCITED TO BE ON THE ROAD AGAIN!

I have the great pleasure of going on the road with 3 of my favorite people in a few weeks.  NYC organist MIKE LeDONNE, guitarist OLIVER GANNON and drummer JESSE CAHLL will be doing a little mini tour starting on October 21st at The Cellar.  Here are the dates and places:

October 21/22 – Cory Weeds’ Cellar Jazz Club

October 24 – The Blue Horse Gallery, Bellingham,Washington

October 25/26 – Tula’s Jazz Club, Seattle, Washington

October 27/28 – Yardbird Suite, Edmonton, Alberta *LIVE RECORDING

October 29 – The Beatniq, Calgary, Alberta

I have been fortunate enough to share the stage with Mike LeDonne on many occasions but never for an extended period of time such as this little tour.  We are going to be playing the music of tenor saxophone great Hank Mobley. This was Mike’s idea and I love it!  Hank wrote some really incredible tunes and we’ll be dipping into Hank’s bag of tunes to recreate some of his gems!  We are recording the nights in Edmonton at the Yardbird for what will hopefully become a record on Cellar Live.

If you have friends in these places tell them to c’mon out!

  1. ~ wow! .. was I impressed! Mike LeDonne is so totally ‘there’ with the music – a magician at the piano keys with the timing of one, too…Jodi Proznick, ever the sensitive accompanist! Thank you, Cory, for introducing me (us) to his genius!
