RIP David S. Ware
Date: October 19, 2012
Saxophonist David S. Ware passed away yesterday and we wanted to share Branford Marsalis’ words about him:
“He was considered a free jazz artist, but was a very intelligent, and highly informed musician. His interpretation of Sonny Rollins’ Freedom Suite is a clear example. He is a voice that will be missed.”
