David S. Ware (saxophone; b. 1949)
I have written about David S. Ware before. He is one the few musicians I believe is pushing jazz forward. Today I wanted to share with everyone some terrific news to my heart. As some of you may know David has been severely ill with kidney failure for the last few years. This limited his touring but not so much his recording. Currently David S. Ware is back on the scene and looks to vibrant as ever. But here's something I really wanted to pass along with everyone from NBC Nightly News Online. A rare national interview with this jazz iconoclast. I hope it touches you as much as he has me. This is why we love jazz.
