Ezra Weiss / Press

“Portland, Ore.-based pianist Ezra Weiss plays and writes with such remarkable forethought and reach on The Five A.M. Strut, its sobering to think that this was recorded just a year after he finished school.”

Greg Buium - Downbeat

“We can only hope that Weiss can keep the standard this high for many years to come.”

Duck Baker - JazzTimes

“On his new album, Persephone (Umoja), the pianist Ezra Weiss proves himself a confident composer and arranger in the progressive mainstream.”

Nate Chinen - The New York Times

“Weiss is representative of a postmodern generation of young composers for the small jazz ensemble (Ryan Cohan, John Hollenbeck, Anthony Wilson are others) that is interested in going beyond the head-solos-head format to more elaborately developed forms.”

Thomas Conrad - JazzTimes
