We've been having an amazing time playing at Ivories. This will be our last concert there for 2012, and then we'll have January off before we continue our monthly residency there. This band's combination of high energy and sensitivity promises a night of beautiful music. Please join us!

The Ezra Weiss Sextet is having a ball playing original burners, ballads, and blues by acclaimed composer/pianist Ezra Weiss. He is joined by some of the finest musicians in the world: Farnell Newton (George Duke, Bootsie Collins), John Nastos (Diane Schuur, Chuck Israels), Devin Phillips (Wynton Marsalis, Eddie Palmieri), Jon Shaw (Andrew Oliver, Tim DuRoche), and Chris Brown (Roy Hargrove, Benny Golson).

"A bold, inspired figure in the contemporary jazz arranging scene."
-Josef Woodard, DownBeat

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

wade in the water


DEVIN PHILLIPS: WADE IN THE WATER is more than a jazz CD; it's also the story of a young jazz musician losing one home, but finding another in the Pacific Northwest.
