Wikipedia : This day (February 19, 1955), in Oakland, California, is born David Murray, an American musician who plays mainly tenor saxophone and sometimes bass clarinet.
@MySpace : During the past 35 years, from the moment he first visited New York as a 20-year-old student, playing in a walkup loft, in 1975, David has careened forward in a cool, collected, rocket-fueled streak. He has released over 150 albums under his own name.
@allmusic : Murray’s sound is deep, dark, and furry with a wide vibrato — reminiscent of such swing-era tenorists as Ben Webster and Coleman Hawkins. And his approach to chord changes is unique.
