"Third Thursdays" welcomes back drummer G. Calvin Weston in March, this time joining Dave Bryant (keys, "Third Thursdays" host), J Johnson (guitar), Rick McLaughlin (bass), who are part of Miles electric period tribute band "Listen To This."

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. - eMusicWire -- Mark your calendars for the return of the iconic jazz drummer G. Calvin Weston, who last performed as a guest of the "Third Thursdays" harmolodic jazz series back in September 2022. Keyboardist Dave Bryant, the host of the series, is a long-time colleague of Weston's, harkening back to Ornette Coleman's electric Prime Time era.

One of the missions of the "Third Thursdays" series is to interview as many former band mates of Ornette Coleman's as possible, in order to increase awareness about Coleman's legacy and his unique free jazz approach to music. A link to the interviews held thus far, all conducted by Bryant, can be found at: dbryantmusic.com/musician-interviews/. The enjoyable interview with Weston, recorded during his last visit to "Third Thursdays," can be found directly at youtu.be/GkJsmK3mjuA?si=XliOMmjjKms2FGWc.
