Cory Weeds Quartet feat. David Hazeltine
A saxophonist with an expressive sound rooted in jazz tradition, Cory Weeds celebrates the release of his 16th CD as a leader on Cellar Music, the label that he founded in 2000. It features New York-based David Hazeltine, one of a handful of pianists who has successfully forged his own distinctive style and musical voice in the modern piano tradition. His influences extend from Art Tatum and Bud Powell to great living masters like Buddy Montgomery, Barry Harris, and Cedar Walton.
Last year Hazeltine and Weeds joined forces and worked out material on tour that they would eventually record in the studio. The resulting record, Day By Day, will be released on May 8.
