For many, David Murray is already a jazz legend, for the number of albums recorded, concerts performed, and awards garnered, with a Grammy, Guggenheim, and Danish JazzPar Prize, among them.  Murray was also an original founding member of the iconic World Saxophone Quartet.

The son of Baptist parents, Murray discovered and grasped the Negro spiritual style, Coltrane, and Ayler.  Now in his fifties, Murray has 1over 130 albums to his name.  Born in Oakland, he grew up in Berkeley and studied with Catherine Murray (his mother, an organist), trumpeter Bobby Bradford, alto saxophonist Arthur Blythe, and drummer/writer Stanley Crouch.  In March 1975, he left Ponoma College in Los Angeles for New York, performing with artists such as Anthony Braxton, Don Cherry, Julius Hemphill and many others.
