Weiss, Dan - Fourteen

SKU 28-PIRC52.2
"Recently named one of Five Drummers Whose Time Is Now by the New York Times, Dan Weiss is one of the most in-demand musicians on the jazz scene, performing with Rudresh Mahanthappa, Miguel Zenon, Lee Konitz, and Dave Binney, among many others. He has been a student of the tabla under his guru Pandit Samir Chatterjee for almost 20 years. Fourteen is an ambitious work that combines all his myriad influences: it features original compositions for a 14-piece ensemble with guitars, horns, voices, harp, percussion, and organ that is an indescribable amalgam of Indian beat cycles, jazz improvisation, extreme metal, minimalism, Ennio Morricone s film music, and prog rock, all compounded into a personal outpouring of expression completely beyond musical boundaries. Intended to be listened to in full its seven parts flow without pause the tracks alternate between ghostly beauty and brutal workouts, by turns intense, cathartic, and transcendent."
