David Murray and the Gwo-Ka Masters

2003 Magic Triangle Jazz Series

David Murray and the Gwo-Ka Masters

Friday, April 11, 2003

Bezanson Recital Hall at 8pm   
$12 General Public, $7 Five College Students with ID.

The Magic Triangle Jazz Series welcomes back the much lauded and highly acclaimed tenor saxophonist and bass clarinetist, David Murray. Fusing the power of gwo-ka with contemporary jazz, Murray creates a sonic landscape that is strongly influenced by the music of Guadeloupe. This project, part of a natural progression for Mr. Murray into the vast realm of pan-African music, sounds especially fresh, since Guadeloupe stands at a crossroad of Spanish, African, French and indigenous music, and is on the whole, largely unknown to the Western world.
