Out March 24 - Dan Weiss - Fourteen

Drummer/composer Dan Weiss’s Fourteen, his debut for Pi Recordings, is available now!

In his rave review in the New York Times, Ben Ratliff calls Dan “a jazz drummer of articulate virtues: You listen to him and you’re reminded of what drum tone should sound like, what multilimb rhythmic organization is, what a displaced beat can do. He doesn’t spread loud charisma all over the instrument. But he’s gotten to the point where his discipline and restraint radiate their own charisma.”

He calls Fourteen “… full of its own convictions…. this is a piece of music — and an album — that seems built only of one composer’s deep, discrete and bravely rendered interests.”

In a wide-ranging set, the trio plays the music of Ayler, covers tracks from the John Coltrane album “Sun Ship,” and even plays two ballad standards!

Album will be also be available on limited edition 180gram vinyl! More info soon.
