For the past several years, improvising keyboardist Dave Bryant, curator and host of the “Third Thursdays” series of monthly harmolodic jazz concerts, has also been involved with the “Listen To This” musical project, which explores the rich legacy of Miles Davis, particularly during his early electric period from 1968-1975.

The project includes founder Jerome Deupree of Morphine and Either/Orchestra (drums), Russ Gershon of Either/Orchestra (woodwinds, organ), Rick Barry of Bim Skala Bim and Lookie Lookie (percussion), Todd Brunel of Know Orchestra (bass clarinet), J Johnson of Parlour Bells (guitar), Rick McLaughlin of Either/Orchestra (bass), and Bryan Murphy of The Shills (trumpet), along with Bryant of Ornette Coleman’s Prime Time (keyboards).

“Listen To This” last appeared at “Third Thursdays” in July of 2023, and since then the group has been performing in many local and greater New England venues. As one audience member so rightly put it: “Listen To This fills the room with hot blue sparks and a primeval, funked-up vibe, the element that pushes a good show to greatness . . . a brilliant flash of improvisation, beyond genre, the ghost of a ghost who shows up out of nowhere and just hangs out. . . .”

About the “Listen To This” project, Bryant notes “LTT is one of our favorite ‘Third Thursdays’ events: we hosted the band’s inaugural concert and the vibe in the room is always fun and engaging. In addition, this will be our third annual opportunity to document the group’s ongoing development in our video series. Expect some variations on our well-established themes!”
