The Paul Weitz Trio

Paul Weitz is a first rate, top shelf jazz guitar player. I give it a BIG thumbs up." "You are a class act."
- Todd Johnson

I've listened to so many recordings over the years... quality jumps right out at you with the first note of music, and stays until the last note is played! And so it is with the Paul Weitz Trio recording.
- Cathy Segal-Garcia

I enjoy Paul's intelligent harmonic choices, his choice of repertoire and arrangements. The rhythm section plays together like they really enjoy listening to eachother, My compliments. I look forward to hearing more from him.
- Sid Jacobs

Paul Weitz is a superior bop-based guitarist with a concept of his own.

Paul Weitz Trio CD Release at the Blue Whale

Weitz played with a bright buoyancy....
The quartet was melding all the elements well as Weitz continued on bop stride, confident and comfortable...
I was really enjoying Weitz and his cohorts, their musical chops and the strong flavors they added to the material.
'A Day in the Life of a Fool" was so gorgeous, it was a pure pleasure to hear it.
Weitz is a strong player; I hear that lightness that Montgomery and Szabo had, but Weitz is not imitative.
The Paul Weitz Quartet is another L.A.-based group that should be heard by a bigger audience. It's strongly bop-flavored without being over wrought but it leavened with doses of pure beauty for its own sake. Weitz goes into each tune with confidence and skill. When you see his name in the calendar section. check him out in a club."

Dr. Matt VanBenschoten and Paul Weitz Malibu, CA

You guys are a class act. I love your musical presentations. That young lady you had at McKenna's had such a beautiful voice with great range and control (Alison Lewis). As always, your guitar work is great. I tell people about you all the time.

Where has Jelsa Palao been all these years? When I heard her sing the first three lines, I heard Carmen McRae who I used to follow in the 60s. Wow, you found a diamond. Keep me informed when she gigs with you again. Your perseverence has prevailed!

Tonight was awesome, electric, riveting, I thoroughly enjoyed the music. Y'know something is happening when the audience gets it. Good one.

This is definitely an artist in the 'deserving greater recognition category'. Beautiful tone, wonderfully crafted chord melodies, bringing a very fresh look to the American songbook. Highly recommended!
