Weiss has been a major catalyst and creator of some of the most critically acclaimed and respected jazz to have been released over the years. In his various roles of trumpeter, composer, arranger, producer, talent-scout, historian and bandleader-he currently leads The Cookers, The New Jazz Composers Octet, Endangered Species, Point of Departure, and the David Weiss Sextet-it is certainly not an exaggeration to call Weiss a jazz renaissance man. Weiss, featured on over eighty recordings, was also the creative force behind the revitalized careers of Freddie Hubbard, Charles Tolliver, and others.
This very special concert sees JazzYYC presenting an Illuminate Series concert within the International Jazz Days programming week. The band features some of the most burning, talented jazz musicians from the NYC jazz scene including the brothers Strickland; Marcus on Tenor Saxophone and E.J. on Drums. This will be a highlight of the year for Calgary jazz lovers.
