Infos EN

David Murray is a giant of modern jazz. His saxophone fuses all the great things that black music has produced: Gospel sounds, free jazz, Afro-Caribbean, blues and soul as well as the beautiful standards of classic jazz. Murray's colorful tone, unsurpassed intonation, flair for swing, melancholy tones, and improvisational power and ingenuity make him one of the most important voices in music today. The newly formed Brave New World Trio congregates style-setting jazz greats with bassist Brad Jones and drummer Hamid Drake. Together they draw from the African-American tradition as well as from other cultures and with Seriana Promethea they present an impressive musical statement. ”The result shows the intuitive level of understanding achieved. Having reached in his mid-60s a level of technical mastery where a musician ‘can play every note that he hears,‘ Murray saw this pianoless trio as not just a way to keep the notes flowing, but a catalyst for total freedom: that rare configuration that allows him to deliver, through the saxophone, “my most free expression of myself”, writes Derek Schilling in the liner notes.

David Murray ist ein Gigant des modernen Jazz. Sein Saxofon verschmilzt, was die Schwarze Musik an Grossem hervorgebracht hat: Gospelsounds, Free Jazz, Afrokaribisches, Blues, Soul sowie die wunderschönen Standards des klassischen Jazz. Murrays farbenprächtige Tongebung, seine unübertroffene Intonation, sein Gespür für Swing, seine melancholischen Tönungen sowie seine improvisatorische Kraft und sein Einfallsreichtum machen ihn zu einer der wichtigsten Stimmen heutiger Musik. Das neu formierte Brave New World Trio vereint mit dem Bassisten Brad Jones und dem Schlagzeuger Hamid Drake stilbildende Jazzgrössen: gemeinsam schöpfen sie aus der afro-amerikanischen Tradition ebenso wie aus anderen Kulturen und legen mit «Seriana Promethea» ein ein- drückliches musikalisches Statement vor. ”The result shows the intuitive level of understanding achieved. Having reach in his mid-60s a level of technical mastery where a musician ‘can play every note that he hears,’ Murray saw this pianoless trio as not just a way to keep the notes flowing, but a catalyst for total freedom: that rare configuration that allows him to deliver, through the saxophone, “my most free expression of myself”, schreibt Derek Schilling in den Linernotes.
