On Saturday, March 17th, legendary Living Colour guitarist and Black Rock Coalition founder Vernon Reid will join Philadelphia’s own Jamaaladeen Tacuma (bass) and G. Calvin Weston (drums) for an unforgettable one-night-only performance at Tritone. In addition to his 20-plus years with Living Colour, the Grammy-award winning Reid has had a critically-acclaimed solo career, including projects with DJ Logic, Masque, the Roots, Salif Keita, and James “Blood” Ulmer.
Thundering bassist Jamaaladeen Tacuma’s resume includes such varied collaborations as Carlos Santana, Amiri Baraka, Jeff Beck, Jean Paul Bourelly, the Roots, and Odeon Pope. He has appeared on Saturday Night Live and with the David Letterman band. Drummer G. Calvin Weston has been pounding away ever since seeing Stevie Wonder, the Jackson Five, and James Brown at the Uptown on Broad Street. Weston went on to record and tour with Ornette Coleman, Tricky, Medeski Martin & Wood, Derek Bailey, and his playing can be heard on several movies, including Get Shorty.
