Details

Pianist James Weidman is indisputably an essential addition to whatever bandstand he graces. A partial list of Weidman's affiliations is staggering in depth and breadth: Max Roach, Woody Herman, Archie Shepp, James Moody, Greg Osby, Bobby Hutcherson, Slide Hampton, Jay Hoggard, Marvin "Smitty" Smith, Gloria Lynne, Dakota Staton, MBase Collective, Cassandra Wilson, TK Blue, Abbey Lincoln, Ruth Naomi Floyd, Kevin Mahogany, Joe Lovano, Marty Ehrlich and Ray Anderson. The gifted Mr. Weidman has the skilled touch of an adept soloist as well as superior accompaniment expertise; he has it all. Adroit in myriad styles, Weidman's resourcefulness has served him well. A native of Youngstown, Ohio, Weidman was born into a musical family, learning jazz from his saxophonist-bandleading father at age seven. Challenging himself musically continues to be of paramount importance to Weidman.
