"The Lamp is Low" is a fast-paced romp through a song that's been covered by some of the legends of jazz, including Ella Fitzgerald, Frank Sinatra, Tommy Dorsey and the Harry James Orchestra. On this track from Weiss' most recent album, the clarinetist is at the top of his game as he leads the Don Friedman Trio through an inspired version of this classic.
