    Weiss weaves his way through a songbook that encompasses olde-tyme rock, jazz, R&B and Cajun sounds. [Jun 2014, p.90]

    His recorded output is sporadic, which makes his latest, Red Beans and Weiss (terrible title, terrific album) such a welcome pleasure.

    An engaging distillation of Weiss' rumbustious style that locks the listener into a groove and doesn't let go. [Jun 2014, p.74]

    Bohemian legend and walking R&B encyclopaedia Chuck Weiss is on great form on this latest album.

    Red Beans and Weiss is a greasy, gritty report from one of L.A.'s last original rock & roll street denizens. It has a grimy charm all its own.

    The whole disc is cool, as in frozen in time from another era.

    An afterhours ambience attending his salty evocations of vintage soul, R&B and rock and roll. [Jul 2014, p.117]
