From Improvised Communications:

AUM Fidelity is proud to announce the January 27th release of Shakti (AUM052), eminent saxophonist/composer David S. Ware’s fifth album for the label and his first studio recording since 2003. This release marks the recorded debut of Ware’s new working ensemble, his first since the disbanding of the long-lived and prolific David S. Ware Quartet (1989-2006). Shakti presents a distinctive selection of Ware compositions written specifically for this ensemble, as well as a new interpolation of “Antidromic” from 1997’s Wisdom of Uncertainty (AUM001). The group, which has solidified both its sound and its line-up through various performances over the past year and a half, features guitarist Joe Morris, bassist William Parker and drummer Warren Smith.

Eri Yamamoto Finds the Keys to the City

From the New York Sun:

The pianist, who is in her early 30s, was sitting in her Hell’s Kitchen apartment on a recent Saturday morning. She was still excited about the evening before, when a full house of European tourists had sat in rapt attention during the performance. And she had other reasons to feel cheerful. The week before was spent in Milan, where Ms. Yamamoto appeared as part of a soulful sextet led by the indefatigable bassist William Parker. And there was her new album, “Redwoods,” a sparkling trio session that complements a release from earlier this summer, “Duologue.” Both were released on the Brooklyn-based label AUM Fidelity.
