Jazz Bassist & Composer extraordinaire Rufus Reid writes... "The Deborah Weisz Trio is an exceptional musical unit. The new CD, TRIO, is a perfect example of this.

The original compositions are well-placed in the programming, holding their own with the established classics by Monk and Dameron. BRAVO

Weisz’ distinctive tone serves as the lodestar for the band. She speaks through her horn with a dramatic whisper, akin to Lauren Bacall’s voice.“ ©Cadence Magazine

Providing an intimate setting for such standards as "If You Could See Me Now," and Jobim’s "Zingaro," the group delivers fresh new interpretations of these and other established classics.
