David S. Ware New Quartet: Théâtre Garonne, 2008

Read "Théâtre Garonne, 2008" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala


È giusto ricordare un gigante come David S. Ware. La quantità di energia e poesia che egli convoglia nella propria musica e nel suono poderoso del sax tenore (e stritch) lo accomuna a grandi come Sonny Rollins, John Coltrane, Albert Ayler. L'etichetta AUM Fidelity lo ricorda con merito nella collana a lui appositamente dedicata, denominata DSW-ARC Series, che ha pubblicato significative documentazioni postume dal vivo del sassofonista, giunte al quinto volume con questo Théâtre Garonne, 2008, che mette in scena ...

David S. Ware Quartet: Théâtre Garonne, 2008

Read "Théâtre Garonne, 2008" reviewed by Mark Corroto


In 2008, when this live concert was recorded, saxophonist David S. Ware was ill, but concert goers would have no idea of this fact. He has been suffering, since 1999 from kidney failure and eventually had a kidney transplant in 2009. Ware and the latest configuration of his quartet traveled to Toulouse, France, just a few weeks after recording the studio album Shakti (AUM Fidelity, 2008) in Brooklyn. By the same token, listeners of that release had no idea of ...

David S. Ware Trio: Live in New York, 2010

Read "Live in New York, 2010" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard


One night on earth David S. Ware was here. Blowing at the Blue Note on October 4, 2010, but it could have been October 4, 2090. Years ahead of his time or perhaps just outside of it, he took his alto saxophone and played. Fully formed compositions never named, but caught eternally on tape. David S. Ware was known as a tenor saxophonist with a big, earthshaking sound of fragile beauty, but this time he took the ...

Il meglio del 2016 secondo Vincenzo Roggero

Read "Il meglio del 2016 secondo Vincenzo Roggero" reviewed by Vincenzo Roggero


Questi i migliori dischi dell'anno? Risposta complicata perché nonostante la massa imponente di musica, fruibile in tutte le forme e in tutti modi possibili, si ha la sensazione che manchi qualcosa (o molto), che siano precluse realtà musicali periferiche rispetto ai normali canali di distribuzione ma importanti dal punto di vista della testimonianza e della valenza artistica. Eccoli comunque i dodici dischi che per un verso o per l'altro hanno segnato gli ascolti di un 2016 ricco ...

David S. Ware & Matthew Shipp Duo: Live In Sant'Anna Arresi, 2004

Read "Live In Sant'Anna Arresi, 2004" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard


Saxophonist and composer, David S. Ware (1949-2012), was one of the most original voices in modern jazz and his uncompromising approach to his art was deeply connected with a spiritual understanding of life. To Ware, playing and listening to music were different aspects of the essence of life. Ware left behind a rich discography and, fortunately, new musical treasures are still coming. One of them is a live recording from Sant'Anna Arresi with his long-term-collaborator, the pianist, ...
