check out earlier releases on PIROUET:

"The Inward Song" (oct. 2010)

"The Inward Song is a superb set of sounds. Weidner is a musician with a very developed and finely focused artistic vision; an owner of a rare original voice who has come up with one of the finest offerings of the year."

(Dan McClenaghan on - 07. Dec. 2010)

and "Choral" (2004)

"... A tiny ridge between composition and improvisation, past and present, on which Weidner creates something big with small means: to combine life, music, belief and hope in a note."

(Reinhard Köchl - Jazzthing, Germany)
