“G. Calvin Weston has blazed a harmolodic, funkadelic trail through modern jazz. Listen to the man who funked-up Ornette Coleman's Prime Time Band in the 1980s and worked with legends such as James Blood Ulmer, Tricky, John Lurie and The Lounge Lizards, James Carter, and Marc Ribot.”

This is a really good, individual take [a string trio! great, great move] on the electric harmolodic sound made by someone who was there at ground zero with Prime Time and beyond. You love the old Decoding Society? You’ll LOVE this. Recommended!

“Ornette Coleman’s drummer G. Calvin Weston hits us with notes both on and off the beat, that mark the time and space of sound, with edgy and sharp melodies. If you listen carefully, you’ll hear an obsessive bass-line that incites the explosion of rhythm.
Dust and Ash is like a sand storm that changes direction with the wind and tries to imprison the traveler. If you hear it without anchors or safety nets, it is like an abstraction that draws a perfect shape. It is like a voyage without departure or arrival points, in which a woman’s voice allows itself to be cuddled by the shadows of a piano and dances with them to become a waterfall of notes before taking off.”

“Adventure has been coursing through the blood of Weston, a drummer of relentless invention, ever since his sojourn with Ornette Coleman when Weston was still a teenager.” - New Yorker
