Tim Weisberg and Friends

TimWeisberg is widely considered one of the pioneers in rock/jazz fusion. His early days were spent performing in many concert venues across the United States,and it was the 1970 Monterey Jazz Festival which firmly established Tim as a unique voice. Some where between "jazz and rock, " Tim’s distinctive style of playing began to gain recognition. He garnered the attention of trumpet player,band leader, and A&M Records label owner Herb Alpert,and in1971, his debut album “TimWeisberg” was released.

The release of this album quickly pushed Tim to the fore front, and the music industry took note. His definitive artistry was soon heard on diverse range of albums including The Carpenters, Kim Carnes, Lani Hall, Paul Horn, GinoVannelli, and Dave Mason. Sharing the concert stage with such artists as Duke Ellington, The Modern Jazz Quintet, Jean-­-Luc Ponty, John Mc Laughlin and the Mahavishny Orchestra, as well as opening form any acts such as Jefferson Starship, Loggins and Messina, James Taylor, and Crosby, Stills and Nash, further propelled Tim into the public eye. I was his performance on "Give Me Some Time," from the album Nethe rLands by Dan Fogelberg, which resulted in friendship and collaboration on the 1978 album Twin Sons of Different Mothers. The LP went on to be come pop/rock mainstay of the late ‘70s and is considered one of the most iconic instrumental albums of the time.

Tim’s laudable career includes 20 albums on the biggest record labels in the business including A&M, Columbia, Warner Brothers, and MCA. His recording of"A Hard Way to Go"was used in the Oscar winning Woody Allen movie Annie Hall. He has sold over 5million albums and played some of the largest venues in the world, and his legendary bands, long heralded as the forerunners of Jam Bands, have been known as proving ground for well known artists including David Benoit, Art Johnson, and Chuck Alvarez.
