Editorial Reviews

23 year-old composer/pianist Ezra Weiss presents an album that features some of the finest musicians on the scene today playing a set of completely original compositions -- tunes that draw from the tradition but push forward at the same time. The 9 tunes on this CD display a fresh sense of melody and harmony, a close attention to detail, and a deft approach to arranging, all of which are brought to life by Weiss' stellar supporting cast: Antonio Hart on alto saxophone, Michael Phillip Mossman on trumpet, Kelly Roberge on tenor saxophone, Leon Lee Dorsey on bass, and Billy Hart on drums.

This is one cool album! The ballads (A Time for Healing, Waiting, I Regret), sometimes soaring and passionate, sometimes subtle and contemplative, are just amazing. The Clown Feature, however, is one of the most imaginative and quirky songs I have ever heard. I couldn't help smiling while listening, because I could almost see the animals, the clowns, the ballons, and the kids! It totally "ruins" the languid, dreamy mood established by A Time for Healing and Waiting, but the album actually sounds more eclectic and interesting because of this mixture of styles and sentiments. The other songs are all very good.

Ezra Weiss is a gifted composer and musician, and I am glad to have discovered him via this CD. This CD makes me happy, relaxed and energized all at once. I play it to listen to the details of the composition and to study it, but also play it in my car and at home just to enjoy. I have given it as a gift to several jazz lover friends, who have enjoyed it as much as I have. Where have they been hiding this guy? Let's hope he is coming out with his next CD soon.

Listening to this album you know that the fate of jazz and jazz composition is alive and well with this find you individual. Ezra Weiss has a very unique writing style with a mixture of soul, classical and Horace Silver. I hope that you enjoy this album as much as I have.
