G Calvin Weston was asked to perform in its last days , he called two long time friends to share the stage. Due to busy tour schedules the trio had not played a single note together. The success of this spontaneous performance at Tonic came as a revelation to the trio of Weston, Vernon Reid and Jamaaladeen Tacuma.

Vernon Reid is no stranger in the circles of rock and funk, a Grammy award winning member of the rock outfit Living Colour and his “instrumental” group Masque. Vernon has been honing his improvisational skills with legends including Public Enemy, Carlos Santana, James “Blood” Ulmer, Mick Jagger and many, many others. Jamaaladeen Tacuma, veteran of Ornette Coleman’s project “Prime Time” and since has constantly toured Europe, playing with musicians from all around the world . He continues to be known for his powerful and energetic improvisational ability literally a living legend in the Jazz circles. Calvin Weston, a bandleader in his own right, has played alongside of Billy Martin (of Medeski Martin and Wood) Tricky, Eyvind Kang, Derek Baily, Mark Ribot and James Carter. Recently, he as been involved in playing on several movie soundtracks like “Get Shorty”, and joined John Lurie’s Lounge Lizards and new studio recordings.
