Cellar Live ( http://cellarlive.com/ )
Cory Weeds, the busiest jazz musician in the industry is behind the mixing board once again playing tenor sax on a live CD recorded at his Vancouver jazz club. A professional musician for nearly 15 years his non-stop-do-a-bit-of-everything musician continues to delight, astound and produce top notch jazz.
Opening track on the album “Juicy Lucy” certainly defies you to not tap your toes, jive and sway your head in time with the music. The album’s energy continues to flow into the second track “Goin Down” where DeFrancesco takes over. It is certainly apparent to me, after hearing him make the B3 organ sing why Joey’s claim to be the finest jazz organist on the planet is spot on real.
The material and execution on this disc is superb. Weeds and the rest of the quartet produce a big sound with an astoundingly laid beat that make you not only hear the music but feel the soul, passion and love of jazz. .
Weeds has now set the bar even higher for himself utilizing the talents of DeFrancesco, Landham and Davis and hope that future endeavours together result in the same high quality as on The Many Deeds of Cory Weeds. This is certainly an exceptionally worthy addition to anyone’s jazz collection.
