G. CALVIN WESTON

 

G. Calvin Weston has blazed a harmolodic, funkadelic trail through modern jazz. Listen to the man who funked-up Ornette Coleman's Prime Time Band in the 1980s and worked with legends such as James Blood Ulmer, Tricky, John Lurie and The Lounge Lizards, James Carter, and Marc Ribot.

“Weston lays down a ferocious groove with ecstatic shouts … tugging rhythmic displacements that tease like thunder and lightning throughout.” — All About Jazz

“Adventure has been coursing through the blood of Weston, a drummer of relentless invention, ever since his sojourn with Ornette Coleman when Weston was still a teenager.” - New Yorker
