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 ...

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, ...

David S. Ware and the Wisdom of Uncertainty

Read "David S. Ware and the Wisdom of Uncertainty" reviewed by Jakob Baekgaard


Every record label needs a beginning, a first release, but it is seldom that the initial release is a masterpiece. However, this is the case with Wisdom of Uncertainty, saxophonist David S. Ware's album from 1997, which was the inaugural release of Steven Joerg's AUM Fidelity imprint. The name of the label is inspired by Charles Mingus' iconic album Mingus Ah Um. Referencing one of the all-time classics in jazz history, Joerg set the bar high for ...

David S. Ware: Organica (Solo Saxophones, Volume 2)

Read "Organica (Solo Saxophones, Volume 2)" reviewed by John Sharpe


As the follow up to saxophonist David S. Ware's lauded Saturnian (Solo Saxophones, Volume 1) (AUM Fidelity, 2010) studio session, this second volume comprises two entire concerts documented in March and November 2010, each pairing matching titled cuts on sopranino and tenor saxophones. If the previous album served to demonstrate that the reedman's solo powers were undimmed, Volume 2 not only affirms that situation, but goes further in showing reservoirs of interior focus and invention that are stronger ...
