Dan Weiss be good.

I was lucky enough to witness Rez Abbasi play with a solid quintet last Friday – April.27 –  at the Rex and man was I ever blown away.  Beyond the amazing versatility of Rez’s compositions the star of the set was Dan Weiss.  What I absolutely loved was his ability to weave his way in and out of peoples solos.  His timing, execution and ear for where someone is in a solo and more importantly where they are going to go, was an absolute joy to witness and if you ever get a chance to see Weiss live doooo it.

So here’s some Dan Weiss. I think this video does a good job of showcasing the amazing quality to his drumming.
