Cory Weeds Quintet featuring David Hazeltine - It's Easy To Remember (CELLAR LIVE 2016)

Join tenor saxophonist and jazz impresario Cory Weeds celebrates the release of his 11th CD as a leader. It’s Easy To Remember was recorded at Smalls Jazz Club in New York City in March. A saxophonist with an expressive sound rooted in Jazz tradition, Weeds has released 11 records as a leader on Cellar Live, the label that he founded in 2000. 

His last release This Happy Madness, recorded with The Jeff Hamilton Trio reached #1 on the Jazz Week Chart and stayed there for 2 weeks. Weeds fulfills a long time dream of collaborating with New York City pianist David Hazeltine. He is one of a handful of young pianists who has successfully forged his own distinctive style and musical voice out of the accumulated greatness and weight of a modern piano tradition. David's influences extend from Art Tatum and Bud Powell to such great living masters as Buddy Montgomery, Barry Harris and Cedar Walton.
