" ...there's always some ass-kicking in the air. But taking a cue or three from Wayne Shorter, they also have a way of smoothing things out in an oddly idiosyncratic manner." - Village Voice
From the halcyon days of the so-called “Young Lions” of the eighties till now, there have been trumpeters heralded as “the next big thing” or “the second coming of…” David Weiss has been a light at the end of the jazz tunnel.
Through his leadership of the masterful New Jazz Composers Octet and his own sextet, Weiss has shown his dedication to the expansion of the sixties – from Freddie Hubbard and Miles Davis and beyond.
In a climate that rewards neo-conservative tributes and deconstruction, Weiss has distinguished himself with his current release,When Words Fail (Motema) - finding flexibility and innovation in music rooted in the mainstream. Weiss has learned from music’s quintessential figures by touring and/or recording with Freddie Hubbard, Charles Tolliver, Billy Harper, Bobby Hutcherson, Slide Hampton, James Moody, Tom Harrell, Louis Hayes and Billy Hart among others.
