Pianist Michael Weiss, grand prize winner of the 2000 BMI/Thelonious Monk Institute Composers Competition, has established a formidable reputation working with such names as Johnny Griffin, Art Farmer, and Wynton Marsalis. In addition to his demand as a sideman, Weiss's role as bandleader, recording artist, composer, arranger, and educator have earned him accolades from both audiences and critics:
"...one of the most dynamic young pianists in jazz" — Chicago Tribune
"...focuses the intensity of a tune as well as any pianist in mainstream jazz" — New York Times
"...writes with thought-provoking originality" — JazzTimes
"...one of the most dependable pianists on the scene" — The New Yorker
The veteran jazz critic Ira Gitler probably summed it up best: "The music of Michael Weiss has those qualities which touch the heart, the soul, the mind, and the 'call it whachawanna'."
