Cory Weeds @ Frankie’s

July 31 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

$10

Tenor saxophonist Cory Weeds has assembled an all-star cast to pay tribute to his tenor saxophone hero, Hank Mobley.

Henry “Hank” Mobley (July 7, 1930 – May 30, 1986) was an American hard bop and soul jazz tenor saxophonist and composer. Mobley was described by Leonard Feather as the “middleweight champion of the tenor saxophone”, a metaphor used to describe his tone, that was neither as aggressive as John Coltrane nor as mellow as Stan Getz, and his style that was laid-back, subtle and melodic, especially in contrast with players like Sonny Rollins and Coltrane. The critic Stacia Proefrock claimed he is “one of the most underrated musicians of the bop era.”

With Chris Gestrin piano, John Lee bass, and Joe Poole drums
