Album Review

Weiss, Dan – “Fourteen” – [Pi Recordings]

humana   3/30/2014   CD, Jazz

Weiss’s virtuosity as a jazz drummer and composer is in evidence here on this amazing release that took him at least two years to compose. Along with his usual trio mates Jacob Sacks on piano and Thomas Morgan on acoustic bass, there are numerous other musicians adding voice, sax, trombone, tuba, harp, glockenspiel, organ, electric and classical guitar. The result is a thoroughly pleasurable experience of jazz smooth enough to be accessible but edgy enough to accommodate improvisational tastes. Just when you think it’s going to be quiet, the rhythms change and get your blood moving in the best way possible.
