Trumpeter David Weiss and his band Point of Departure of musical proof that jazz is very much alive. On Venture Inward, the acoustic quartet creates a brand of music that is electric. Weiss and company take on compositions by Herbie Hancock, Tony Williams, Andrew Hill and Charlie Moore and the band’s performance lives up to the stature of the jazz greats. The sound and synergy here is too engaging to ignore. Weiss is joined by tenor saxophonist J.D. Allen, bassist Luques Curtis, drummer Jamire Williams and guitarist Nir Felder for a lively musical conversation, one which we have the privilege to overhear.
