"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)

"Elegantes Draufgängertum." (Tom Gsteiger: "Der Bund", Mai 2017)

Woodoism praktizieren „einen Kammerjazz, der gleichzeitig filigran und kraftvoll ist. [...] Der junge Posaunist und seine Partner bauen subtilen Polyfonien, und handkehrum lassen sie es krachen wie in alten New Orleans- Kollektivimprovisationen; mit viel Witz, Temperament, ja Übermut. Natürlich nie in einem restaurativen Sinn, sondern eher so, wie Charles Mingus sich mit neuen Mitteln auf alte Spielformen bezog. [...] Musik, die gleichzeitig anspruchsvoll und vergnüglich ist. Vor Zeiten war das einmal ein Charakteristikum von Jazz überhaupt." (Peter Rüedi)

Florian Weiss, a young trombonist and composer based in Switzerland, and his pianoless quartet Woodoism invite you to a musical loop through the bandleaders’ original compositions. The band released its first album in 2017, which was greatly celebrated by the press: "Chamber jazz that is both, light and powerful (…) with a lof of wit, temper and cockiness. (…) music, that is sophisticated and enjoyable at the same time“, legendary Swiss journalist Peter Rüedi wrote about this debut. In 2018 Woodoism has been awarded the prestigous ZKB Jazzprize and audience award. The second album entitled „Refugium“ is going to be released in september 2019 on the Germany based label Neuklang, followed by an extensive releasetour in Switzerland, Germany, Lithuania and Russia.
