Musician

Mort Weiss

Born:

Mort Weiss is a bebop-oriented clarinet player with ten albums as leader to date. After having taken 30-odd years off from playing, Weiss came to musical life as a leader in 2003 with The Mort Weiss Quartet (AKA Mort Wiess Meets Joey DeFrancesco) (SMS Jazz, 2003) following with B3 and Me (recorded in 2003 but not released until 2006). According to jazz writer Scott Yanow, "Clarinet-organ groups are far from common. In fact, prior to Mort Weiss' debut CD with organist Joey DeFrancesco, it is possible that combination had never been utilized before." Indeed, but this didn't stop Weiss and DeFrancesco from doing so.

Born in 1935 in Pennsylvania, Weiss began clarinet lessons when he was nine-years old

Read "Mort Weiss Is a Jazz Reality Show" reviewed by Angelo Leonardi


La storia del jazz è ricca di drammatiche vicende umane e quella di Mort Weiss è l'ultima in ordine di tempo.
