I want to help

Jon Weber

My new CD, Simple Complex, features Roy Hargrove, Gary Burton, Eric Alexander, Mark Walker, Avishai Cohen, Diego Urcola, Niels-Henning �rsted Pedersen, Matt Clohesy, Paul McCandless and many others performing 10 of my original pieces; mostly in a jazz sextet format. A self-taught pianist/arranger, I recorded almost all of Simple Complex at Deaf Dog Studio in Chicago with producer John Ovnik. My sextet performed for a full house at Carnegie Hall in November 2003 with guests Joe Farnsworth and Yosvany Terry, and my quintet headlined at the Melbourne International Jazz Fest earlier in the year. BET showcased us on a NYC gig on January 24, 2004.
