Pianist Michael Weiss has been described by the New Yorker as “one of the most dependable pianists on the scene.” Best known for his fifteen year association with saxophonist, Johnny Griffin, he has established a formidable reputation working with a host of jazz luminaries such as Art Farmer, Jimmy Heath, Frank Wess, Benny Golson, Lou Donaldson, Slide Hampton, George Coleman, Charles McPherson, the Smithsonian Jazz Masterworks Orchestra, and Wynton Marsalis.

Weiss maintains a longstanding commitment to jazz education, presenting jazz workshops and master classes in universities, secondary schools and primary schools. In addition to serving on the faculty at Hartt School of Music and Queens College, he has participated in Carnegie Hall’s JazzEd and Jazz at Lincoln Center’s programs and presented master classes at the Juilliard School, Sibelius Academy in Helsinki, Finland, Indiana University, and the International Association of Jazz Educators Conference.
