Seth Weaver Seth Weaver

Seth Weaver has rapidly established a reputation as one of the most exciting new jazz names on the NYC jazz scene. Whether though his brilliant improvised trombone solos, rich baritone vocals, original compositions, or his dedicated teaching, his passion for music and unique talent shines through. Seth’s latest project is a big band album titled “Truth,” slated for release in March 2020, and will be showcased at Birdland in an April 2020 concert.

Weaver has performed at Dizzy’s, Carnegie Hall, Kennedy Center, and Bass Performance Hall, to name a few, and has performed in Amsterdam and Dublin. He has shared the stage with Ben Folds, Alfredo “Chocolate” Armenteros, Larry Harlow, Bucky Pizzarelli, Michael Dease, Ulysses Owens Jr., Adam Neely, Luis Bonilla, and Manhattan Transfer. He was featured as a guest artist with the New London Big Band, and served as artist in residence at Millersville University. He appeared on TV for “An American Big Band Christmas,” broadcast nationally. In July of 2020, he will present a masterclass at the International Trombone Festival in Osaka, Japan. In spring of 2020, he will embark on a month long tour of Uzbekistan and Almaty, Kazakhstan with Aberdeen, a tour funded by the US State Department and the International Jazz Festival in Uzbekistan.

As a bandleader, Seth’s seventeen-piece swing orchestra is comprised of some of the most exciting young musicians in the New York jazz scene. They have performed at numerous venues around New York City, including The Iridium, Swing 46, Club Bonafide, the APAP Showcase, Shapeshifter Lab, American Beauty, St. Peter’s Church, and many others. Described as “big band swing with a modern twist,” the group has a monthly residency at The Gin Mill. Seth is a sought after composer and arranger and his music has been performed all over the world. His brilliant composition “Frost” debuted at Carnegie Hall in 2018, as did his composition “The Hudson,” in 2016. He composed the original score for the off-Broadway play, “For What It’s Worth.” Seth’s transcription and analysis of Michael Dease’s album “Coming Home” is available through Warwick Music Publications.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
