David S. Ware Profiled

From his time hitting New York clubs as a kid to his brief stint at Berklee and years spent leading his own bands, David S. Ware pursued a path of unfettered expression, sopping up sounds and emotions as he went along.

The late saxophonist, who would have turned 70 today, recorded Birth Of A Being, a collaborative album with Apogee, in 1977. For Ware, the disc (which was released in ’79) marked the beginning of a decade’s long search for the sublime that included brushes with fame, a major-label deal and even the occasional gig with rock acts.
