He has also performed with Joe Henderson, Woody Shaw, Clark Terry, Clifford Jordan, Phil Woods, Pepper Adams, Ron Carter, David Newman, Gerry Mulligan, Nancy Wilson, Randy Brecker, Donald Byrd, Joe Wilder, and other high-profile jazz recording artists. As a band leader, Weiss has headlined most notably at the Village Vanguard, Blue Note, Bradley’s, and the Detroit Jazz Festival.
