Remembering David S. Ware
Nate Chinen, music critic at the New York Times, did his job especially well: his account of the recent memorial for saxophonist David S. Ware, with many new music luminaries in attendance, made me regret that I hadn’t been there. And it compelled me to watch this video, shown in part at the memorial and just posted the week of the Ware memorial. This documentary supports my hunch that the world of new music will be much the poorer in David S. Ware’s absence.
