David S. Ware Track On Tonight’s Jazz on 3

Tonight’s episode of BBC 3’s Jazz on 3 features the track “Crossing Samsara” from David S. Ware’s Shakti, coming January 27th on AUM Fidelity.

This is Ware’s first studio recording since 2003, and the recorded debut of his newest working ensemble featuring guitarist Joe Morris, bassist William Parker and drummer Warren Smith.

During the segment, host Jez Nelson calls Ware “unquestionably one of the most forceful and original voices in contemporary saxophone” and Shakti  “a fabulous, welcome return”.

Listeners in the UK can hear the program, which also features an exclusive studio session by the Gail Brand/Mark Sanders Duo and tracks from other artists’ new releases, live starting at 11:15 p.m., while the rest of us can tune in via the show’s Web site for up to a week after it airs.
