MUSICIAN Born:

David S. Ware

David S. Ware played the saxophone for over 40 years. First in New Jersey public school bands, and in informal practice sessions with Sonny Rollins as a youth in the '60s; then as part of the fertile NYC Loft Jazz era of the '70s. During this decade, he joined the Cecil Taylor Unit and Andrew Cyrille's Maono. He also worked together with drummers Beaver Harris and Milford Graves. In the early '80s he toured Europe with both Andrew Cyrille and his own trio. In mid-decade, Ware purposefully engaged himself in a period of extensive woodshedding - in order to further develop both his personal sound and his visionary group concept. The '90s saw the full-on actualization of this group, and the recognition of David S

Whit Dickey: Tao Quartets: Peace Planet & Box of Light

Read "Tao Quartets: Peace Planet & Box of Light" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala

Possiamo dire che l'assioma secondo il quale tutti i jazzisti sono sottovalutati, non sia poi così paradossale. Parliamo naturalmente dei musicisti che mettono al primo posto del loro operato il fare artistico e non la realizzazione di un prodotto solo ben accetto sul mercato. Spesso ci troviamo di fronte a musicisti che subiscono tale disattenzione in ...

Matthew Shipp String Trio: Symbolic Reality

Read "Symbolic Reality" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Of the many formations in which Matthew Shipp works, his string trio is one of the most eclectic and appealing. Mat Maneri, William Parker and Shipp have covered the breadth of progressive improvised music from chamber to noise. Shipp has dabbled in electronica and hip-hop, but more often in the genre-less manner which makes him stand ...

This episode is a mixed bag of some newer releases and some recent ones definitely worthy of revisiting. The Austrian quintet chuffDrone takes an interesting approach to its highly polished improvisation, while the duo of bassist Rob Clutton and saxophonist Tony Malaby create an album of gems on Offering; it's the kind of personal connection that ...

John Sharpe's Best Releases Of 2019

Read "John Sharpe's Best Releases Of 2019" reviewed by John Sharpe

There's sometimes a backlash against picking the year's best albums. Understandably so when it entails pitting one honest artistic endeavour against another. Best to view the selections as a chance to pick up on something that you might otherwise have missed. As a listener I always look forward to the annual year end lists for precisely ...

In 2008, when this live concert was recorded, saxophonist David S. Ware was ill, but concert goers would have no idea of this fact.

Whit Dickey/Kirk Knuffke: Drone Dream

Read "Drone Dream" reviewed by John Sharpe

Duets with drummers form the bedrock of cornetist Kirk Knuffke's whole musical experience, ever since jamming with a friend in high school. Consequently, Drone Dream constitutes the third such twosome to appear in his discography. And he obviously finds drummer Whit Dickey--still best known for his tenure with fiery saxophonist David S. Ware and adventurous pianist ...
