More Info:

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