"The Cookers" made Philly "Believe"

If you were lucky enough to have witnessed this performance at The Painted Bride on February 16th, I don't have to explain. For those unfortunates not in attendance, The Cookers (minus George Cables, but replaced by Orrin Evans) presented Philly with the Show of the Year as far as jazz is concerned! The Bride hasn't seen an overflowed crowd like that in recent times, according to their board president. The Billy Harper written Capra Black was awe inspiring and put me in a Lee Morgan state of mind. Harper, Henderson, Weiss, Handy, Evans, Mcbee and Hart were all on their A games! There is no substitute for being there, but the cd "Believe" will comfort your ears. If you were there please collaborate with a post!
