DAVID S. WARE: Onecept
David S. Ware
stritch, tenor sax, saxello
William Parker bass
Warren Smith drums, tympani
The recording and release of Onecept celebrates David S. Ware’s 50th year of singular and profound saxophone artistry; a studio session specifically arranged for same featuring Ware on three saxophones – saxello, stritch, tenor – along with fellow musical masters William Parker (stalwart fellow prophet) on bass and Warren Smith (also featured on Ware’s album Shakti) on drums and tympani. Unlike almost every previous album Ware has made in the past 20 years (Corridors & Parallels being another exception), there was no rehearsal for this session; the songs/streams were created fully in the moment of creation, trusting in collective skill to manifest the majesty.
