And Yes > Today is the 70th Anniversary of David S. Ware's Birth >>> Happy Birthday DSW, wherever your spirit now resides.
In The Music, most certainly. And up at https://davidsware.bandcamp.com/
is a right fine way to dig Much of it!
This great portrait by Jimmy Katz (ca. 1996) is one of my all time favorites.
And we celebrate as we have since 2015 with the release of a new edition in the DSW-ARC series, which is shipping now!
Below is the first published review of this brand new, together with the previous edition, which..
The Balance has been repressed in a 2nd & final limited edition; the CDs literally arrived back from the plant yesterday, and I listened to it together with my eldest son Liam, who was utterly marveling at the numerous passages of circular breathing that David enraptures with on this set: "how can he play for that long on one breath??!!" When I explained how circular breathing works, Liam was even more astounded.
OH, and the very special Trifecta/Full DSW Trio Works AUM-direct bundle deal is also back in effect..
And today, too, a great new piece on David was published up on DownBeat. Do Read! Some wonderful-wonderful quotes from
William Parker, and Branford Marsalis called a nice one in as well.
The Focused Energy of Saxophonist David S. Ware
