Saxophonist David S. Ware, who builds his free improvisations on a profound musical knowledge, is the one and only heir of John Coltrane. His powerful tone and unrestricted fantasy push him forward as a unique musician in the free jazz scene. At school Ware first played the alto and baritone saxophone before he discovered the instrument that would make him famous: the tenor saxophone. In his teens he became enthralled with Sonny Rollins. He saw this ‘saxophone colossus’ several times in clubs like The Five Spot and The Village Vanguard. During the seventies both giants rehearsed non stop in Rollins apartment in Brooklyn. There, Rollins taught him the technique of ‘circular breathing’. In 2002 Ware would thank his old mentor with a new arrangement of his timeless composition The Freedom Suite.
