David Murray's "The Devil Tried to Kill Me"

Published:



The Gwo Ka Master's represents DAVID MURRAY's quintessential exploration of his roots. The Jes Grew Spirit is ever presents: the ghost of the runaway slave, the vehement force of the Ka drums; the glowing saxophone weaving the Havana tones of the brass section into the virtuoso guitar work. David Murray's tenor saxophone ignites the atmosphere with free blasts while the Guadeloupean boulgyel, the traditional, tropical version of the beat box, throws out a line to hip hop. Every Gwo Ka Masters concert is a new exploration of Creolisation, in its most vibrant form.
