Théâtre Garonne, 2008 presents a luminous concert from a transitional period in David S. Ware’s ever-creative life. His 17-year-longstanding Quartet with Matthew Shipp & William Parker, which had achieved a naturally ascendant worldwide acclaim, performed their final concerts on a triumphal European tour in March 2007. Knowing that this end was coming, David had already begun writing new compositions and conceptualizing what would become his :new: quartet. The first iteration of this group – foundationally with guitarist Joe Morris – debuted at New York’s Iridium jazz club in mid-July. The group was made whole with Ware’s stalwart musical companion William Parker back on bass and fellow master musician Warren Smith on drums.
Live at Théâtre Garonne in Touluse, France on May 24, 2008
