PoD Reviews David S. Ware + Cleaver/Taborn/Parker

 

 

 

 

 

 

The February issue of Point of Departure features reviews of AUM Fidelity’s two latest releases, David S. Ware’s Shakti and Gerald Cleaver/William Parker/Craig Taborn’s Farmers By Nature.

PoD’s editor/publisher Bill Shoemaker writes, “There are plenty of saxophonists who have a commanding presence; few have as many ways of establishing it as Ware. Shakti is both a successful turning of the page for Ware, as well as a reminder of just how compelling a figure he remains.”

In his review of Farmers by Nature, Ed Hazell notes, “everyone is listened to and supported and offers up suggestions and ideas that turn into fruitful directions for the band to explore. Like the farmers of the album’s title, this trio excels at planting kernels of sound and letting the music flower and flourish.”
