It’s time for a new adventure! My life has been surrounded with creativity. For very long time, I have nurtured my creative force. Not always putting 100% into it, so I could make a living.
This journey has made my life worth while! I have no regrets! I’ve learned a lot and shared many wonderful moments with many wonderful musicians and audiences!

I felt that many times I have expressed myself playing in some of the great bands I’ve worked with, but when I go into a recording studio, I fall short of my expectations!

Playing live, when you’re physically disabled is very difficult! And I do not like depending on other people! Most of the time, I come to the gigs stressed out and physically exhausted and then I have to suck it in and try to be creative!

So after a lot of soul-searching I’ve decided to focus on recording music and working on my health and mental well-being!

I’m already in the process of working on some music that will be far beyond what I’ve ever released before. I’m finally starting to understand how to tongue-block and incorporate all the techniques that I learned in my 45 years of playing this instrument. My goal is to master the harmonica to the best of my abilities.

But most importantly. I do this for myself. I don’t really need accolades or don’t want money! It will be a gift to whoever wants it!
Miles Davis said that a great note resounds forever, but a recording lives beyond the life of an artist!

The David Langlois and the Hot Clubbers  album is out!!!

 This Gypsy Jazz ensemble will featured Miguel on a few cuts! I was about 2 years out from braking my back and David asked me to play this gig, LOL”!!

I plan on producing my first full length album too. This will focus on my harmonica and feature different groups that demonstrate the different genre and sound I’ve created the music.

Past Gigs

The JAHWID videos taken from a fan/s phone in 2013. Miguel enhanced the sound a bit and created the Logo and Titles.

 


The Canglosi Cards

The Cangelosi cards with Tamar Korn, Jake Sanders, Marko Gazic Cassidy Holden Andrew Nemr, New Year’s eve 2007! This was at the grand ballroom is the Manhattan Center.
The Dresden dolls saw us busking on the street and hired us to be one of the Warm-up bands. With the agreement that we would ask for donations to the couple thousand people in the audience! Was a lot of ones!
Was the longest day ever! We had three gigs and two rehearsals! We started about 10 in the morning and went to about 6 AM the next day!
This video was from the telephone bar on second Avenue. That’s Tamar on Vox and Mark Tipton on trumpet. We had a regular gig there in the back room, where people could dance but no one could talk! LOL! Was nice! Got spoiled!


The Canglosi Cards past gigs include opening the 2007 New Year’s Eve Show at the Grand Ballroom in Manhattan, Swing Out New Hampshire (’06, ’07,’08, ’09), the Washington D.C. Lindy Exchange (’08, 09’), The Big, Big, Event in Washington D.C. (’07).

Dean Landew
Singer, Songwriter, Musician, Producer
“Miguel is the best harmonica player I’ve ever worked with. Not just the best blues player. The best harmonica player. His range is exceptional. He can switch styles on a moment’s notice, and he’s always willing to venture into whatever territory will enhance the piece of music he’s working on at the time. All this, and he’s a genuinely nice guy too.”

Marco Heiland
Private Instructor
”I met Miguel in 2008, when I was looking for a music and harmonica instructor. It was a unique experience. The lessons were the best I’ve ever had; the contents ranged from music history, production to actual playing instruction. The results I got were really great, and I have no words to thank him enough!”

Mark Tipton
Trumpeter, Composer, Music Educator
”Miguel Weissman is one of my favorite musicians to work with! His incredible harmonica playing, his vast knowledge of audio engineering and MIDI programming, and his vibrant creative spirit makes every encounter with him a joy, and a major learning experience. I highly endorse his work!”.

Richard Hunter
Harmonica instructor and musician
“I heard Dean Landew’s record “Indestructible Voices,” which features NYC-based Miguel Weissman on harmonica. Weissman is heavily featured, and this record plays like Springsteen with Magic Dick in the lineup. If you like rock harp, you’re going to eat this record up. Attaway to go Miguel!”

The blues genre is based on the blues form but possesses other characteristics such as specific lyrics, bass lines, and instruments. Blues can be subdivided into several subgenres ranging from country to urban blues that were more or less popular during different periods of the 20th century. Best known are the Delta, Piedmont, Jump, and Chicago blues styles. World War II marked the transition from acoustic to electric blues and the progressive opening of blues music to a wider audience, especially white listeners. In the 1960s and 1970s, a hybrid form called blues-rock evolved.
The blues takes many forms… It is variously a feeling, a mood, a nameless threat, a person, a lover, a boss man, a mob, and, of course, the Devil himself. It is often experienced as both cause and effect, action and reaction, and it can be used as both hex and counterhex, poison and antidote, pain and relief. Most importantly, the blues is both the cause of song, and song itself”.
