An all-star band that includes some of the top talent in the U.S., the Ezra Weiss Sextet plays modern yet accessible original compositions and arrangements, all deeply rooted in jazz tradition, with emotional energy and artistic drive. Their recent album, Before You Know It, received tremendous recognition from press and radio, making numerous critics' Top 10 Lists for 2014. In this band, trumpeter Farnell Newton (Jill Scott, Bootsy Collins), alto saxophonist John Nastos (Diane Schurr, Chuck Israels), tenor saxophonist Devin Phillips (Wynton Marsalis, Eddie Palmieri), bassist Jon Shaw (Blue Cranes, Dirty Revival), and drummer Christopher Brown (Roy Hargrove, Benny Golson) join forces to bring Weiss’ heartfelt and imaginative compositions to life.

“…Weiss proves himself a confident composer and arranger in the progressive mainstream.” – Nate Chinen, The New York Times

“A bold, inspired figure in the contemporary jazz arranging scene.”
— Josef Woodard, DownBeat

“We can only hope that Weiss can keep the standard this high for many years to come.”
— Duck Baker, JazzTimes
