Criss Cross Jazz 1300 CD

Walt Weiskopf

Day In Night Out

Available: February 18, 2008

On DAY IN NIGHT OUT, his latest Criss Cross leader date, Walt Weiskopf upholds the high standards he's set on his previous nine albums for the label.

Here he leads a hand-picked octet -- each of the five horns is a veteran section player with extraordinary improvisational skills, including Criss Cross veterans Andy Fusco and Gary Smulyan, propelled by a rhythm section comprising the extraordinary young drummer Kendrick Scott, best known as Terence Blanchard's drummer, and the harmonically informed pianist and bassist Peter Zak and Doug Weiss - through a suite of eight heady originals and a rearranged standard.
