ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Performing live music with gifted musicians in front of an audience is my all time favorite thing to do; recording in the studio is not. Now don’t get me wrong, I have thoroughly enjoyed the creative process in the studio, recording ( 20 ) albums since 1971. However, the ultimate reward for each and every album has been the opportunity to perform more and more live shows for incredible audiences who “love it live” like I do. With that in mind, I finally succumbed to sug- gestions from numerous friends to do my first video shoot of one of my live shows.

However, a funny thing happened on the path to making that video. I ended up with a Live Concert Video and a Live Concert Album; only the 2nd live album I have ever done. I must admit that it took an extended passage of time for me to come to the realization that I indeed had a New Live Album.

This new album, ANOTHER BYTE, is comprised of one performance recorded live as it unfolded in front of a wonderful audience at a great venue, ALVAS SHOWROOM, in San Pedro California. There were no do-over’s, multiple takes, or overdubs. You will hear and experience this performance just as the band and audience did. We all had a great time that evening.
I hope you will enjoy it too.

Tim Weisberg is widely considered one of the pioneers in rock/jazz fusion. His early days were spent performing in many a concert venue across the United States, and it was the 1970 Monterey Jazz Festival which firmly established Tim as a unique voice. Somewhere between “jazz and rock,” Tim’s distinctive style of playing began to gain recognition. He garnered the attention of trumpet player, bandleader, and A&M Records label owner Herb Alpert, and in 1971, his debut album “Tim Weisberg” was released.

The release of this album quickly pushed Tim to the forefront, and the music industry took note. His definitive artistry was soon heard on a diverse range of albums including The Carpenters, Kim Carnes, Lani Hall, Paul Horn, Gino Vannelli, and Dave Mason. Sharing the concert stage with such artists as Duke Ellington, The Modern Jazz Quintet, Jean-Luc Ponty, John McLaughlin and the Mahavishnu Orchestra, as well as opening for many acts such as Jefferson Starship, Loggins and Messina, James Taylor, and Crosby, Stills and Nash, further propelled Tim into the public eye.

It was his performance on “Give Me Some Time,” from the album Nether Lands by Dan Fogelberg, which resulted in a friendship and collaboration on the 1978 album Twin Sons of Different Mothers. The LP went on to become a pop/rock mainstay of the late ‘70s and is considered one of the most iconic instrumental albums of the time.

Tim’s laudable career includes 20 albums on the biggest record labels in the business including A&M, Columbia, Warner Brothers, and MCA. His recording of “A Hard Way to Go” was used in the Oscar-winning Woody Allen movie Annie Hall. He has sold over 5 million albums and played some of the largest venues in the world, and his legendary bands, have long been heralded as the forerunners of Jam Bands.

Another Byte of the Apple, 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.

Great album
I first saw Tim Weisberg in concert about 1976. I have loved his music ever since. It's been a long time since I've been able to get a new album, so was delighted to get this one. Some of the songs are ones from other albums, but being a live concert, they are composed differently - no worries if you have them on another album and don't want to get the exact same thing. I really hope for a re-release of all Tim's albums, I'd certainly buy them! I have some on vinyl, some on cassette and a couple on CD. I'd love to have everything on CD.

Another Byte. Wow!
Several years ago at Ft. Lewis College in Durango, Colorado I saw Tim in concert and not only admired Tim and his performance but fell in love with "flute music." Over the years I have looked everywhere for Tim's music. Finally, ANOTHER BYTE. WOW. Not only Tim but his BAND are out of this world. I have almost worn out the CD everywhere I go in my vehicle. WHAT A PERFORMANCE. WHAT A GROUP OF MUSICIANS. My BEST TO YOU AND continued success. WOODY MOORE
