The Chicago Reader discusses Ware’s recent release as well as his kidney operation.
In January powerhouse saxophonist David S. Ware released Shakti (Aum Fidelity), his 23rd album as a bandleader, recorded in May 2008 following a European tour. It was his first new studio disc since 2003, and on it he debuted a superb group with guitarist Joe Morris, drummer Warren Smith, and longtime bassist William Parker. Though Ware’s muscular tone and rigorous style of post-Sonny Rollins motific exploration remained intact, the band as a whole sounded markedly different than the quartet he’d led for the previous 17 years.
