About Dan Weiss

New York-based drummer and percussionist Dan Weiss' sound is instantly recognizable whenever he plays. His style is comprised of equal parts modern jazz and East Indian rhythms. He began playing in his teens when he first heard recordings by Led Zeppelin. His first 14 years of playing were dominated by rock & roll. It was his drum teacher, Jeff Krause, who introduced him to jazz via records by Max Roach & Clifford Brown, and Count Basie. Weiss changed course almost immediately. Weiss is also an instructor. He provides private instruction for tabla and drum kit, and is a faculty member at both the New School of Music and the Manhattan School of Music. ~ Thom Jurek
