The David S. Ware Memorial begins Friday, October 19th at noon and will run until 6am on Saturday October 20th. We'll celebrate Ware's work on a variety of saxophones (tenor, sopranino, saxello), and as composer and bandleader in a career spanning 40 years and many shades of jazz. The recordings feature David S Ware solo and his collaborations with Cecil Taylor, Andrew Cyrille, his classic quartet - Matthew Shipp, William Parker, Marc Edwards - and many others. Tune in to celebrate David S. Ware.
