David Murray Infinity Quartet, Saul Williams - Banlieues Bleues
After soul sister Macy Gray, with whom he recorded an album, the ever-inventive saxophonist brings us a brand new body of work inspired by the slam poetry of Saul Williams.
He appears with the Infinity Quartet, named after his early years at the Infinity loft-studio in New York, and with Saul Williams himself. A great choice: over the past fifteen years, the star of the independent film "Slam" has been standing out among rappers and slam poets with the quality of his writing and the intensity of his performances. His punch lines make him a unique performer - a remarkable poet with a powerful rap-soul voice. In David Murray, who previously worked with writers Amiri Baraka and Ishmael Reed, Williams has found an ideal partner. A match made in heaven.
