Tim Weisberg has long been regarded as one of the most original rock, blues and jazz-fusion flutists. In 1970, fresh out of grad school and virtually unknown,Tim Weisberg exploded on to the scene with his opening performance at the Monterey Jazz Festival, where he firmly established himself as a unique musical talent. Somewhere between jazz and rock, Tim’s distinctive style of playing caught the attention of A&M Records label owner Herb Alpert. In 1971, A&M released his debut album, Tim Weisberg, and the journey began.
With a career spanning several decades and generating over 20 albums, most fans would unanimously agree that his musical genius is most indelibly stamped on the platinum album, Twin Sons of Different Mothers, recorded with Dan Fogelberg. Twin Sons went on to become a pop/rock mainstay of the late’s 70’s and is considered one of the top iconic rock instrumental albums.
Tim’s eagerly anticipated new album, Another Byte was recorded live at Alvas,and is only Tim’s third live album. The first, released by A&M Records in 1976, was recorded over eight evenings at the Troubadour in West Hollywood. His next live release, in 1979, was one of the industry’s first digitally recorded albums,featuring Tim and his band in a live performance at Hollywood’s legendary Producer’s Workshop.
Another Byte matches his live shows note for note, capturing the high energy,musical excitement and innovativeness that is classic Tim Weisberg. The journey
