The Leaders Are Back!

They created a big stir in the 80s and 90s: The all-star band "The Leaders". Releases on various labels (Black Hawk, Black Saint and Sunnyside) and international tours gained the band worldwide recognition. The bands members were none less than Arthur Blythe, Lester Bowie, Chico Freeman, Famoudou Don Moye, Cecil McBee and Kirk Lightsey.

Now the group has been revived. The initiators were Chico Freeman and Cecil McBee, who remembered the "good old times" and had the great idea to create an ensemble composed of experienced "leaders again. Unfortunately, a few of the original members are no longer available. Consequently, an ensemble was formed around the core of the two legends McBee and Freeman, which is composed of experienced musicians who are big names in jazz on one hand, and on the other hand have often been on stage or in a studio together - blind trust was to be the basis.

The Leaders: Chico Freeman, Bobby Watson (saxophone); Eddie Henderson (trumpet); Fred Harris (piano); Cecil McBee (double bass); Billy Hart (drums).
