With over 250 years combined jazz experience and over 1000 recordings, each member of the Cookers is a bandleader in his own right. "Player for player, there’s no better working band in jazz than The Cookers." (The Boston Globe).

In this intimate concert pairing, described as a “simpatico merging of two great musical minds and four talented hands” (Twin Cities Pioneer Press), violinist Regina Carter and pianist Xavier Davis bring an electric connection to the stage. Hailed as the foremost jazz violinist of her generation, Carter’s quest for beauty, combined with her passion for excellence, earned her a prestigious Genius Grant fellowship from the MacArthur Foundation.
