Reid/Tacuma/Weston @ Bimhuis, 11-Nov-2007


Yesterday I went into Amsterdam to catch the afternoon show by the trio of Vernon Reid, Jamaladeen Tacuma and Calvin Weston at Bimhuis (housed in the black section of the Muziekgebouw shown sticking out on the right side). This band, billing itself as ‘free form funky freaks’ did indeed get very funky and pretty free too, improvising a great set. Reid had all kinds of effects going on, with tons of gadgets on the floor and nearby, while Tacuma just had his bass (and his cool shiny silver shoes), and Weston had a big drum set. When Tacuma gets a good groove going, he really leans into it! Good stuff.

    I remember Vernon Reid from the Living Colour days. They were going to be the first big African American hard rock band. I think I still have some of their music on my I-POD. Sounds like he is doing some pretty interesting stuff these days. I know he was always a well respected guitaist!
