First Listen: Cory Weeds - Condition Blue: The Music of Jackie McLean

14 years after releasing the first record on the the Cellar Live (Ross Taggert btw) comes the 100th album from the Vancouver based label called Condition Blue: The Music of Jackie McLean from label head Cory Weeds.

Cory enlisted the same band from his debut the New York-based trio of Mike LeDonne (Benny Golson, Milt Jackson) on Hammond B3 organ, Peter Bernstein (Joshua Redman, Diana Krall, Brad Mehldau) on guitar, and Joe Farnsworth (Cecil Payne, Diana Krall, Pharoah Sanders) on drums.

The album features compositions from the Downbeat Hall of Famer Jackie McLean and is a fitting showcase not only for a great musician but for one of the true champions of Canadian Jazz.

Your First Listen is 'Snuff.
