Welcome to my music blog - The Soundtrack of My Life!

Many of you have asked me “What’s with all the music, Dr. Weiss?” Well, as I’ve told some of you:

I personally call every surgery patient on the evening of surgery just to make sure they are doing well and have no questions that need answering. Occasionally, I would be at the piano and play a song that we had listened to that day. I gradually realized that I wanted to go through all the music that I had played during my life and at least start making a list of the songs that I had recently played.

Well, there are now about 600 songs on the list and I realized that it in a way it represented the ‘soundtrack of my life’! And that’s how I got the idea to record these songs and share them with my patients, friends and family. After I record them they will reside here, for easy access.

Music is truth. It’s honest. It’s really the first social media, where in a way, people could share their souls directly. And isn’t that what the purpose of social media is and why it’s so popular - trying to share who you really are, as completely and directly as possible?

Finally, it has been (and will continue to be) a genuine pleasure sharing these different songs with you and I really appreciate all of your positive feedback!!

As luck would have it, we’ve got a brand-new musical medley for our fantastic family of patients in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day!  Of course it’s filled with beautiful piano music, but it also features Dr. Weiss playing the penny whistle! Click to watch the video and find out a little more about penny whistles as well as hear some traditional Irish songs played on it! Wishing you all a happy, safe St. Patrick’s Day!  

In My Life

Today, I’d like to celebrate the life of George Martin, who took a chance on four teenagers, awarded them their first recording contract and transformed popular music history. Thanks George – as well as John, Paul, George, and Ringo. Cover image credit: NPR.org

Nobody Knows You – Dr. Weiss plays at patient party!

October 10, 2015

Sometimes we just like to say thank you to our awesome family of patients and friends, hang out, and have a little fun. And that’s exactly what we did this summer! We couldn’t invite everyone (at least not until the SuperDome rent drops a little), but some lucky folks got to eat, drink and be merry with a little accompaniment by the fabulous live music of Nutty Jazz. Hope to see YOU at our next get-together! You can find more about Nutty Jazz and their music here: http://nuttyjazz.com/
