listening... the birth of a being by david s. ware, just a neighborhood guy who woodshedded with sonny rollins in the '60s, played with cecil taylor and andrew cyrille in the '70s, drove a cab for 14 yrs, led the band gary giddins called the best small jazz band of the '90s, was the only artist branford marsalis ever signed to columbia records, and just had a kidney transplant earlier this yr. hopefully he'll be fully recovered and making more music soon. birth sounds like cecil's dark to themselves woulda if it'd been one long tenor solo, which ain't bad, altho a trifle draining.
