Jazz guitarist Stu Weissman has been a fixture in the jazz scene since his arrival to Buffalo.  One of the region’s most versatile jazz guitarists makes an appearance at Jazz at Mansion.

Stu Weissman has been on the local music scene since the early 1970s and while often considered first and foremost as a jazz guitarist he is also is conversational in the blues and funk genres as well.   Originally from NY City he came to Buffalo in 1969 and with the exception of a one-year hiatus has been here for the last 50 years.  His earlier years saw him playing mostly on Buffalo’s East Side where he performed with his mentor and friend (guitarist) James Clark.

In 1980 he joined he became a member of the “Buffalo Jazz Workshop” where he revived the Albright Knox Sunday summer jazz concerts that continue on to this day.  Since that time he has been a leader of his own jazz duos, trios, and fronted the jazz-fusion group “67th Ave” in the early 80s.  He was a part-time adjunct instructor of jazz guitar at Buffalo State College for nearly 17 years and continues to teach young and not-so-young guitar enthusiasts.  He often plays weekly at the Sportsmen’s in Joe Baudo’s quintet.

He will be joined by next-generation jazz artist and his son Avery on bass.
