Geoff Cooke

Geoff Cooke

Another artist I first watched at "The Jazz Cafe", I have known Geoff Cooke since 1995 when he was backing up Edmonia Jarrett. Geoff at that time was playing with Reuel Lubag (piano) and Tim Turner (drums).   I have watched him hone his craft over the years to become a regular backing up "local talent" and "out of towners". It was a pleasure to see him with the great Ernestine Anderson (at Jazzbones Feb. 7, 2002). Ernestine's version of Miles Davis's "All Blues" was one of the best renditions I've ever heard and of course it all starts with that wonderful bass line.
