JAZZ FEST INDEX - 2008 Rochester INTERNATIONAL JAZZ FESTIVAL

David Murray Black Saint Quartet at the Rochester Jazz Festival

Murray's bass player was Jaribu Shahid, also the new bassist with the Art Ensemble of Chicago. He started a song called"Banished", from the documentary of the same name, with a beautiful bowed intro. Murray switched to bass clarinet and the drummer played mallets. It was the standout tune of the night. We tried to add the movie to our NetFlix queue but it has not been released yet. - photo by P Doddy - click photo to advance > next
