David S. Ware

Born:

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.

Whit Dickey Quartet: Astral Long Form: Staircase In Space

Read "Astral Long Form: Staircase In Space" reviewed by Mark Corroto


As leader of the Whit Dickey Quartet, the drummer placed total faith in his bandmates for this studio session. The accompanying materials quote Dickey, “I asked them all to not think of time too much; I just wanted them to play, not to follow me or each other." Was that instruction made out of confidence or ...

Pianoless Trios: Sonny Rollins to Ballister

Read "Pianoless Trios: Sonny Rollins to Ballister" reviewed by David Brown


Sonny Rollins is famous for the pianoless trio. He said the lack of chordal instruments gave him more freedom for soloing. Tonight, a smorgasbord of trios sans pianos. Offering lots of space for soloists and collective interplay. Note: Due to a loose board plug, songs two and three play in mono. The issue was resolved during ...

Whit Dickey / William Parker / Matthew Shipp: Village Mothership

Read "Village Mothership" reviewed by John Sharpe


Village Mothership presents a constellation of stars which first assembled some three decades ago. Although released on drummer Whit Dickey's Tao Forms imprint, on this 2020 studio date the trio, completed by bassist William Parker and pianist Matthew Shipp, manifests as a cooperative effort, unlike their first appearance on Circular Temple (Quinton, 1990) under Shipp's leadership. ...

My Conversation with Matthew Shipp

Read "My Conversation with Matthew Shipp" reviewed by AAJ Staff


From the 1995-2003 archive: This article first appeared at All About Jazz in June 1999. Society as a rule, in the nineties, has become so accustomed to being spoon-fed their opinions and their ideas that if Rosie or Oprah doesn't recommend it or some guy fails to give it a thumbs up, it is ...

Whit Dickey / William Parker / Matthew Shipp: Village Mothership

Read "Village Mothership" reviewed by Mark Corroto


If drummer Whit Dickey, bassist William Parker, and pianist Matthew Shipp were a rock band, we might expect them to cover their classic album Circular Temple (Quinton Records, 1992) an LP, later re-released on the Infinite Zero label in 1994. Of course they are not a rock band, but If they were, we probably would demand ...
