Swinging The Sax And Keeping The Jazz Fires Burning In Vancouver B.C.

Cory Weeds is a key member of the Vancouver B.C. jazz scene. The longtime owner of the Cellar jazz club is now focused on live jazz all around the city, including the TD Vancouver International Jazz Festival (June 24 through July 3).

He’s also one of Vancouver’s top sax players. His latest album, “This Happy Madness,” features the trio of all-star drummer Jeff Hamilton, and shows Cory at the top of his game.

While in the Puget Sound region recently, Cory was celebrating the music of sax legend Sonny Rollins, and led a terrific trio with Michael Glynn and Matt Jorgensen at the bass and drums. Check out his cool twist on Sonny’s “Airegin” by B.C. bassist Jodi Proznick called “Adanac”. (Spell them backwards for a fun surprise!)
