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.

Tomeka Reid - Joe Morris: Combinations

Read "Combinations" reviewed by John Sharpe


One of the fascinations of a duet is how the alternating tension and balance between the two poles can create an overall mood which differs from either of the constituent parts. Abstraction particularly promotes that sort of ambiguity, and it is especially prevalent in the pairing of cellist Tomeka Reid and guitarist Joe Morris on Combinations, ...

Matthew Shipp: The Piano Equation

Read "The Piano Equation" reviewed by Giuseppe Segala


È difficile non riconoscere fin dalle prime battute lo stile pianistico di Matthew Shipp: l'articolazione del tocco che combina geometrie complesse, dure, spigolose, e volate leggere, quasi noncuranti su alcuni passaggi; l'indugiare sulle sonorità scure di certi accordi e cluster; il soffermarsi su motivi ostinati, liberandosi di essi attraverso virate repentine di atmosfera; i contrasti dinamici. ...

Guillermo E. Brown: Freedom of Music

Read "Guillermo E. Brown: Freedom of Music" reviewed by AAJ Staff


From the 1995-2003 archive: This article first appeared at All About Jazz in April 2002. When it comes to music, Guillermo E. Brown is something of an omnivore. Whether it be calypso, out jazz, hip hop, or electronica, Brown is all ears. That makes the 25 year-old New Yorker something of an exception to ...

Luís Vicente / John Dikeman / William Parker / Hamid Drake: Goes Without Saying, But It's Got To Be Said

Read "Goes Without Saying, But It's Got To Be Said" reviewed by Mark Corroto


It has been more than half a century since the oracles Albert Ayler and John Coltrane proclaimed their message of freedom to the people of earth. Please excuse the grandiosity of the above statement, but after those two giants passed, a shift in consciousness began to take hold. In the biography of William Parker Universal Tonality: ...

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 ...

DUX Orchestra: Duck Walks Dog (With Mixed Results)

Read "Duck Walks Dog (With Mixed Results)" reviewed by John Sharpe


The cover of the 1994 archival recording Duck Walks Dog (With Mixed Results) by the DUX Orchestra presents an intriguing line up which combines American free jazzers with Swedish baritone saxophonist Mats Gustafsson. Even within the New York City contingent there is diversity, as veteran stickman Walter Perkins (who played with Sonny Rollins, Roland Kirk and ...

Okuden Quartet: Mat Walerian/Matthew Shipp/William Parker/Hamid Drake: Every Dog Has His Day But It Doesn't Matter Because Fat Cat Is Getting Fatter

Read "Every Dog Has His Day But It Doesn't Matter Because Fat Cat Is Getting Fatter" reviewed by Karl Ackermann

Walerian had studied piano at six and taught himself saxophone while in his teens. He expanded his self-taught regime to include clarinet and flute in 2008-9. Walerian has sporadically taken lessons from ...

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
