Walt Weiskopf Octet - Day in Night Out (2008)

On DAY IN NIGHT OUT, his latest Criss Cross leader date, Walt Weiskopf upholds the high standards he's set on his previous nine albums for the label. Here he leads a hand-picked octet - each of the five horns is a veteran section player with extraordinary improvisational skills, including Criss Cross veterans Andy Fusco and Gary Smulyan, propelled by a rhythm section comprising the extraordinary young drummer Kendrick Scott, best known as Terence Blanchard's drummer, and the harmonically informed pianist and bassist Peter Zak and Doug Weiss - through a suite of eight heady originals and a rearranged standard.

Walt Weiskopf - tenor sax, flute
Andy Fusco - alto sax, flute, clarinet
Gary Smulyan - baritone sax
Michael Leonhart - trumpet, flugelhorn
John Mosca - trombone
Peter Zak - piano
Doug Weiss - bass
Kendrick Scott - drums
