This interview with bassist Doug Weiss took place after our first concert together in June 2020 at the Green Room in Köln. Such cool way to get to know each other: After a rehearsal and dinner, we played a concert and had this conversation in front of a live audience. Right from the start I found it very easy to connect with Doug. That’s one of his many talents: to quickly connect with anyone around him and to make them feel at ease. Always in service of the music. Always on point. Much to learn here! It was a big pleasure to get to talk to him about his process and his musical relationships with my heroes like Al Foster, Brian Blade, Kevin Hays, or Bill Stewart. Thank you Doug!
