0:00 AM David Murray “Chelsea Bridge” — Jazzosaurus Rex
HAPPY BIRTHDAY! Wednesday, February 19 - David Murray 02/19/1955 Reedman Berkeley, CA
“A 20-year-old Murray took jazz by surprise in 1975, when New York was still reeling from the death of John Coltrane. The penetrating certainty and harmonic sparseness of Coltrane’s late work left people awed. Murray made his mark by reengaging with the older, more lyrical styles of Don Byas and Ben Webster, and he built new room in the avant-garde for blues humor and playful ironies.” [David Murray: A jazz innovator leads from the center to the edge, Giovanni Russonello, Washington Post]
