Cory Weeds Quartet featuring pianist David Hazeltine from New York City

Cory Weeds Quartet featuring pianist David Hazeltine from New York City

“A player and writer with great respect for the melody, Hazeltine can be surprisingly inventive with the harmonic and rhythmic possibilities in a tune. Unobtrusive yet frequently exciting, Hazeltine always sounds as if he is digging what he’s playing, and his approach makes well-known tunes sound fresh…” – Aaron Steinberg, Jazz Times

Bio

Featuring celebrated New York City pianist David Hazeltine, Vancouver saxophonist Cory Weeds is one of Canada’s most influential Jazz impresarios with an expressive sound rooted in the Jazz tradition. Hazeltine is the most recorded contemporary jazz pianist of our time, having recorded thirty five CD’s as a leader and hundreds more as a sideman, on various major labels globally.

Extended bio arrow

CORY WEEDS is a leading Canadian jazz saxophonist, with extensive connections to New York City, who has recorded twelve chart-trending albums as a leader with a who’s who of North American jazz, including: Dreamsville (with The Jeff Hamilton Trio), It’s Easy To Remember (with David Hazeltine, Joe Magnarelli, Paul Gill and Jason Tiemann),  This Happy Madness (with The Jeff Hamilton Trio),  Condition Blue, The Music Of Jackie McLean (with Peter Bernstein, Mike LeDonne, and Joe Farnsworth), As Of Now (with the Harold Mabern Trio), Let’s Go (with Steve Davis), the Juno-nominated Up A Step (Cory Weeds Quartet), With Benefits (with Lewis Nash and Peter Washington), Just Like That (with the Tilden Webb Trio), The Many Deeds of Cory Weeds (with Joey DeFrancesco), Everything’s Coming Up Weeds (with Jim Rotondi), and Big Weeds (with Peter Bernstein, Mike LeDonne, and Joe Farnsworth).

DAVID HAZELTINE is one of a handful of contemporary pianists who has mastered all of the major musical skills, from improvisation and technique, to accompaniment, arranging, and composition. Even more impressive, David is the rare artist able to innovate in each category. A Milwaukee native, David was playing the clubs as a preteen, and before he’d even come of age he was already grabbing the attention and respect of jazz legends like Sonny Stitt, and Chet Baker. They urged him to make the move to New York City, which he did in 1992.
The mark of a true artist, David’s style appeals to a wide range of musical tastes and levels of sophistication. His melodies and harmonies are beautifully complex and memorable. David is known for taking a familiar or unexpected song and making it new, making it his own.
Hazeltine has worked with some of the world’s respected jazz legends including James Moody, Eddie Harris, Jon Faddis, Joe Henderson, Pepper Adams, Jon Hendricks, and Marlena Shaw.
KEN LISTER has been a professional jazz bassist since 1983, winning accolades and Juno awards along the way. He currently performs and teaches in Vancouver and on Vancouver Island and has toured across Canada and internationally to Australia, the British Isles, Cuba and South America.
As a member of the Phil Dwyer Orchestra, Ken won a Juno Award for Contemporary Jazz Album of the Year, 2012, and with the Hugh Fraser Quintet, the Juno Award for the Best Mainstream Jazz Album of 1997.

He has performed with many great musicians including Larry Willis, Mike DiRubbo, Eric Alexander, Don Thompson, Linton Garner, Ross Taggart, Tommy Banks, Phil Dwyer, Ingrid Jensen, David Hazeltine, Misha Piatigorsky, Pat Coleman, Bill Mays, Vincent Herring, David Schnitter, Jim Rotondi, Steve Davis, Dmitry Baevsky, Ray Vega, Thomas Merriott, Ian Hendrickson Smith, Terrell Stafford, Slide Hampton, Chucho Valdes, Steve Turre, Kenny Wheeler, Joshua Redman, Herb Ellis, Charlie Byrd, Rob McConnell, Ian McDougall, P.J. Perry, Sam Noto, Ernie Watts, Guido Basso and many others.

JESSE CAHILL started playing drums at a young age and worked his first professional gigs at 16 in restaurants and clubs in his hometown of Victoria, British Columbia. In 1993 he moved to Montreal to study music at McGill University, graduating in 1999 with a Bachelors Degree in Jazz Performance (with distinction).

Since returning to the west coast in 1999 Jesse has become one of the busiest drummers on the Canadian music scene. He has worked with jazz legends like David “Fathead” Newman, George Coleman, Harold Mabern, Red Holloway, Dr. Eddie Henderson, Charles MacPherson and Bobby Shew. He has also performed, toured, and recorded with many internationally recognized artists such as Eric Alexander, Peter Bernstein, Vincent Herring, Jim Snidero, Terrell Stafford, Mike Ledonne, Pat Bianchi, Joe Magerelli, Jim Rotondi, Steve Davis, Ryan Kysor and George Colligan. On the Canadian scene he can be heard with top artists including Tilden Webb, Jodi Proznick, Oliver Gagnon, Phil Dwyer, P.J. Perry, Cory Weeds, Bill Coon, Ken Lister, Miles Black, Don Thompson, Paul Pigat, Cousin Harley, Jim Byrnes and many others.

Jesse is an in demand session player and has appeared on dozens of recordings including Jodi Proznick’s Juno Award nominated recording Foundations and Jerrold Dubyk’s WCMA Jazz Album of the Year The Maverick. His playing can be heard regularly on CBC Radio One and Two and he has been a featured guest and performer on Jazz Beat, Hot Air, and Canada Live.
