Seit 2014 gibt es dieses junge Schweizer Quartett um den Posaunisten Florian Weiss, das landauf, landab die Fachpresse, wie eine stetig wachsende Fangemeinde begeistert. Woodoism, mit Linus Amstad (Altsax), Valentin v. Fischer (Bass) und Philipp Leibundgut (Schlagzeug) veröffentlichen 2017 ihr Debütalbum Woodoism, 2019 folgt beim deutschen Label Neuklang die zweite Scheibe Refugium; ein „magisches Gebräu“, wie die deutsche Jazzthing dazu schreibt. Dazwischen gewinnt das Quartett 2018 den Jazzpreis der Zürcher Kantonalbank und obenauf den Publikumspreis und betourt ihre Veröffentlichen unter anderem in der Schweiz, Österreich, Deutschland, Italien, Ungarn, der Slowakei, Russland und Litauen. Mit Alternate Reality legt Florian Weiss’ Woodoism im Frühling 2021 nun ihr drittes Album vor, veröffentlicht bei Nils Wograms Label NWog Records.

This young Swiss quartet was founded in 2014 by trombonist Florian Weiss. Woodoism have been increasingly drawing the attention of international music critics and their growing fanbase in the past few years. The band, with Linus Amstad on altosax, Valentin v. Fischer on bass and Philipp Leibundgut on drums released their highly recognised debut Woodoism in 2017 and were awarded the prestigous ZKB-Jazzprize as well as the audience award in 2018. Meanwhile, the band has been touring in Germany, Austria, Hungary, Italy, Russia and Lithuania. Their latest album was released on the german-based label Neuklang Future in autumn 2019: „A magic brew,“ as Jazzthing states in their review. With Alternate Reality, Florian Weiss' Woodoism presents their third album in spring 2021, released on Nils Wogram's label NWog Records.
