Harmolodic jazzer Dave Bryant announces his mid-winter "Third Thursdays" monthly concert lineup
Mid-to-Late Winter lineup to wrap up the first year of "Third Thursdays", a monthly harmolodic jazz series launched in April 2022 by host keyboardist/composer Dave Bryant, a long-time student and sideman of free jazz legend Ornette Coleman.

What has transpired since that first "Third Thursdays" last spring has been documented at https://dbryantmusic.com/
For the "Third Thursdays" scheduled for these next three months, Bryant has fashioned three different concerts that will include the following collaborative and improvisational artists, who will join him in generating some heat: Bruno Råberg and Jerry Leake in January; James Kamal Jones, Greg Hopkins, Giovanni Moltoni, and Rick McLaughlin in February; and Tom Hall, Eric Hofbauer, Jacob William, and Miki Matsuki in March.
Bryant notes that these wintry concerts "will feature Prime Time member James Kamal Jones in February in a well-deserved and long overdue showcase. This is bookended by a reunion in January with Bruno and Jerry in a twist on the acoustic piano trio format, and a March reunion of our long-standing quintet which opened the series. Looking forward to all!"
When the series began last April, Bryant invited his long-time local experimental collaborators Hall (tenor sax), Hofbauer (guitar), William (bass), and Matsuki (drums) to join him in launching this new series. Each month's concert since then has brought together a varied and robust cast of experimenters, all driven to explore the possibilities of intensely collaborative improvisation. Much has transpired since last April, with a new commitment to continue with this series for a second year, starting this April. It is very fitting that March 2023 will serve as a coda for the first 12 months of "Third Thursdays" with Bryant's local friends Hall, Hofbauer, William, and Matsuki coming together once again to set the stage for an exciting and varied concert calendar. Updates will be available soon for the spring "Third Thursdays" schedule.
For the next 3 wintry months, "Third Thursdays" concerts will feature the following:
-- January 19: Dave Bryant (keyboards) with Bruno Råberg (bass) and Jerry Leake (percussion);
-- February 16: Dave Bryant (keyboards) with fellow Ornette Coleman collaborator James Kamal Jones (drums), along with Greg Hopkins (trumpet), Giovanni Moltoni (guitar), and Rick McLaughlin (bass);
-- March 16: Dave Bryant (keyboards) with Tom Hall (tenor sax), Eric Hofbauer (guitar), Jacob William (bass), and Miki Matsuki (drums).
All the concerts will be held at the Harvard-Epworth United Methodist Church, located just outside Harvard Square, with the following basic information:
