Soulfull ?

There are so many David Murray recordings avaliable on emusic -many worth a download but this is in my top 5. Great band, and the music played with a lot of feeling. Hard to pick a personal fav track as they are all great - but do really like tracks 2 & 4.

Near to Busting

Atlaight!

David Murray calling to the Lord straight through the reeds like the baby Moses. This music will fill your heart near to burst then combust it all over your soul.

They Say All Music Guide

David Murray mostly sticks to spirituals on this Japanese import, a quartet outing with pianist Dave Burrell, bassist Fred Hopkins and drummer Ralph Peterson, but that does not mean that all of the improvising is mellow and melodic. There are some peaceful moments on tunes such as “Amazing Grace” and a spirited “Down by the Riverside,” but Murray’s playing is so violent on “Abel’s Blissed Out Blues” as to be almost satirical. A mixed success from the masterful tenor. – Scott Yanow
