About the Artist(s)

Cory Weeds is an expressive saxophonist with a warm and impactful sound rooted in jazz tradition. Jazz aficionados know that Cory, when playing tenor or alto sax, conveys an unerring sense of swing. Recording more than 20 albums as a leader that document his dynamic saxophone playing on both hard-swinging tunes and gentle ballads, he has shared stages and recording studios with the likes of Bill Charlap, Joey DeFrancesco, Champian Fulton, Jeff Hamilton, Harold Mabern, Roy McCurdy, Brad Turner, and many other high-level artists. He’s a fearless musician who embraces a broad range of playing situations and then delivers with performances that shine.

Jerry Weldon is one of today’s leading proponents of Soul Jazz who represents the ‘bar-walkin’, hard-blowing, tenor legends in our contemporary American Jazz scene. Weldon who is New York born-and-raised musician, became a charter member and featured soloist in Harry Connick Jr. ‘s newly formed big band in 1990. He was seen daily on Connick’s daytime television program HARRY throughout its two-year run.
