About the Artist(s)

Tenor saxophonist Cory Weeds assembles an all-star Vancouver quintet to play music from Horace Silver’s 1959 Blue Note classic, Finger Poppin’

Finger Poppin’ was the first album Horace Silver recorded with the most celebrated version of his quintet… It’s also one of Silver’s all-time classics, perfectly blending the pianist’s advanced, groundbreaking hard bop style with the winning, gregarious personality conveyed in his eight original tunes. Silver always kept his harmonically sophisticated music firmly grounded in the emotional directness and effortless swing of the blues, and Finger Poppin’ is one of the greatest peaks of that approach.  With Brad Turner – trumpet, Chris Gestrin – piano, John Lee – bass and Jesse Cahill – drums

Special thanks to the Italian Cultural Centre!
