"Das Quartett Woodoism bewies eindrücklich die hohe Qualität und Originalität des jungen Schweizer Jazzschaffens." (Frank von Niederhäusern: "Jazz n More", Januar 2019)

"[...] Ein magisches Gebräu." (Rolf Thomas zu "Refugium": Jazzthing Aug. 2019)

"Eine vom ersten bis zum letzten Ton vergnügliche und im allerbesten Sinn unterhaltende Musik, die [...] mit überaus klugen, witzigen und abwechslungsreichen Kompositionen aufwartet." (Steff Rohrbach: "Jazz n More", September 2019)

"Florian Weiss' [Woodoism] gewinnt ZKB Jazzpreis 2018" (NZZ Feulleton, Mai 2018) Zum Artikel

"Dementsprechend bauen der junge Posaunist und sein Saxofonpartner subtile Polyfonien, und handkehrum lassen sie es krachen [...] mit viel Witz, Temperament, ja Übermut." (Peter Rüedi: "Weltwoche", Juli 2017)

"Eine junge Schweizer band mit einer Menge an Potential, Kreativität und originellen Zugängen zu Modern Jazz;  weit weg vom üblichen Mainstream und infantilen Epigonismus." (Concerto, Sept 2019)

Seit fünf Jahren 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) wird bereits ein Jahr nach der Gründung in die „Best of Swiss-Jazz-Bachelors“-Konzertreihe gewählt, 2017 erscheint das vielgelobte Debütalbum Woodoism, 2018 gewinnt das Quartett den ZKB-Jazzpreis und obenauf den Publikumspreis. Daneben touren sie durch die Schweiz, Österreich, Deutschland, Italien, Ungarn, die Slowakei, Russland und Litauen. Mit Refugium legt Florian Weiss’ Woodoism im Herbst 2019 ihr zweites Album vor, veröffentlicht beim Hauslabel der legendären Bauer Studios, Neuklang Future.

This young Swiss quartet was founded five years ago 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.
