Two new reviews to report for David S. Ware’s new release, Shakti (AUM Fidelity).
“Ware’s inventiveness burns as brightly as ever,” writes Marc Medwin in his review for Dusted, “his playing encompassing every dynamic and expressive shade. Shakti is a bold new statement from a true innovator.”
In the new March issue, JazzTimes‘ Steve Greenlee adds, “he is certainly employing a broader palette than he did in his younger days. Gone is Matthew Shipp, who helped sculpt the Ware sound, replaced with guitarist Joe Morris, who plays with much more subtlety, giving Ware more breathing room for his own solos…a new direction for Ware, one that promises to be equally fulfilling.”
