Music: Vancouver Cory Weeds plays sax in Whatcom Jazz Music Arts Center series

The Cory Weeds Quartet performs at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 11, at the Majestic, 1027 N. Forest St., hosted by the Whatcom Jazz Music Arts Center, with Miles Black on piano, Michael Glynn on bass and Julian MacDonough on drums.

A crowd favorite and one of the most soulful tenor saxophone players in the region, Weeds will bring his always swingin’ arrangements back to the center for another feel-good night of music.

Weeds may be best known as the founder and owner of Cory Weeds’ Cellar Jazz Club in Vancouver, B.C., which he successfully ran for more than 13 years. Weeds built the Cellar to become one of North America’s best jazz clubs, where such masters as George Coleman, Jeff Hamilton, Louis Hayes, David “Fathead” Newman, Dr. Lonnie Smith, and the finest jazz musicians from Canada performed before it closed in February 2014.

Admission is $10 general, $5 students, free for center members. Details: wjmac.org.
