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.
@last.fm : From Jerry Garcia to Max Roach and from Randy Weston to Elvin Jones, David Murray worked as widely as possible until 1978, when he set up his own quartet, then octet and finally his quintet
