Peter Hum gives his take on David Weiss “Venture Inward”…

leave a comment

blogs.ottawacitizen.com If you know Snuck In and Snuck Out, the 2010 and 2012 live recordings from trumpeter David Weiss and his Point of Departure quintet, then this recently released studio disc from the trumpeter’s group might induce some déjà entendu. In paticular, there’s a significant amount of overlap between the Snuck In and Venture Inward, which is not surprising given that al ...Read More

JazzWrap on David Weiss “Venture Inward”…

Technically, in recording order, this would actually be the first Point of Departure album. The album features the studio versions of tracks that would later be performed on the live albums, Snuck In and Snuck Out. It’s still a solid release that is worth every bit of ...Read More

Steve Greenlee reviews David Weiss “Venture Inward” for JazzTimes…

leave a comment

jazztimes.com Let’s call bunk on the claim that jazz should always find new things to say. Venture Inward, the new platter from trumpeter David Weiss and his quintet Point of Departure, is steeped in 1960s postbop—specifically that of Miles Davis—and it would be futile to argue that it is anything but jazz of the highest order. Following his two outstanding live albums, Snuck In and  ...Read More

Dan Bilawsky on David Weiss “Venture Inward”…

leave a comment

www.allaboutjazz.com Fans of trumpeter David Weiss may be a bit confused when they take a look at this album. At quick glance, it reads like a re-tread of Weiss’ Snuck In (Sunnyside, 2010), which has a near-identical line-up playing a near-identical program, but there’s a good reason for that: both albums were actually recorded a day apart in completely different environments. Snuck ...Read More

thejazzbreakfast.com New York trumpeter Weiss leads a quintet with JD Allen on tenor, Nir Felder on guitar, Luques Curtis on bass and Jamire Williams on drums.

Dave Sumner makes David Weiss his pick of the week for eMusic…

leave a comment

www.emusic.com A solid new set of releases dropped this week, resulting in something like 20 recommendations in all. There’s some oddball recordings here, but for the most part, it’s Jazz of a straight-ahead variety that is the predominant sound. Also, a whole bunch of albums from debut and under-the-radar artists, so if you look over this list and feel like there’s something wrong with you ...Read More
