"The featured guest this month is saxophonist Ken Field (Revolutionary Snake Ensemble, Birdsongs of the Mesozoic), who will be joined by Dave's long-time collaborators Jeff Song (cello), Jacob William (bass), and Curt Newton (drums). Ken Field will be contributing some of his own compositions to the evening's musical experience.

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, former member of Ornette Coleman & Prime Time, who will be drawing from his large pool of many near and far musical friends, all there to enjoy themselves. All “Third Thursdays” sessions are held on a regular monthly basis within the Harvard-Epworth Methodist Church, located a short walking distance from Harvard Square. Audience seating capacity will abide by whatever health and safety protocols are in place on any given month.

The ”Third Thursdays” harmolodic jazz series is funded in part by the Appalachian Springs Foundation (ASF), a private foundation located in Wheeling, WV. As a nonprofit arts and educational organization, ASF has supported dance, film, music, and educational projects."
