David Weiss Sextet
Jazz trumpeter, arranger and producer David Weiss’s mission has always been to move jazz forward. During the ’90s, he founded The New Jazz Composers Octet, a group dedicated to innovation in jazz. In 2000, Weiss formed a second group, the David Weiss Sextet, to explore new compositional concepts and styles he was developing that did not fit the sound of the octet. In the past few years, Weiss has formed three new ensembles, all quite different and with their own unique sound.
