“Third Thursdays” with Dave Bryant and Friends: a monthly harmolodic jazz series, held at the Harvard-Epworth United Methodist Church.

Thursday, August 18, 2022 - 8:00pm

Keyboardist and composer Dave Bryant continues his monthly harmolodic jazz series "Third Thursdays", this coming month conjuring up the free flowing intensity that electronica can bring to this already unpredictable style of music making.

Both musical guest artists for August, saxophonist Neil Leonard and bassist Bruno Råberg, have been long-time advocates of incorporating electronic elements into their own musical pursuits. With Bryant's own personal history, as being the first electric keyboardist to join Ornette Coleman's Prime Time group, this "Third Thursdays" concert in August promises to be – fully charged.

Bryant has this to say about August's session: "Neil and I have been friends and collaborators for almost 45 years, and it's always great to embark on a new project together. Bruno, of course, is one of the top bassists, composers, and bandleaders in the Boston area and beyond. We're looking forward to an evening together indulging our electronic sides, and engaging our instrumental rapport."

Upcoming "Third Thursdays" sessions:
-- September 15: Dave Bryant (keyboards) joined by fellow Prime Time collaborator G. Calvin Weston (drums) along with Jim Hobbs (alto saxophone) from Fully Celebrated Orchestra, Dave Fiuczynski (guitar) from Screaming Headless Torsos, and Mike Rivard (bass, sintir/guimbri) from Club d'Elf.
-- The full Fall "Third Thursdays" lineup will be available in August.

The "Third Thursdays with Dave Bryant and Friends" harmolodic jazz series began this past April, with the premise of providing an opportunity for local audiences to experience an approach to jazz improvisation that can best be described as fun challenges. An approach that will be played out once a month by host Dave Bryant, who will be drawing from his large pool of many near and far musical friends, all there to enjoy themselves. The "Third Thursdays" harmolodic jazz series is funded in part by the Appalachian Springs Foundation.
