The real David Murray might just be hiding in this box set There is a strange paradox running through these three films: when we watch them, we don't learn so much about the man, but a lot about his music. Yet this is surely where the true David Murray lies. "I'm a jazzman: don't look elsewhere, don't mistake me for someone else. Everything I have to say is in my music; it talks about me and the world..." - David Murray
David Murray, I'm A Jazzman (2008) A slice in the life of saxophonist David Murray captured by the camera, a privileged testimony of a life merged with the story of jazz, as one of its ultimate heroes.
David Murray And The Gwo Ka Masters Live in Sainte Lucie (2008) This film, shot during a stopover at Sainte Lucie, an island in the West Indies, restores the energy of a masterful concert performed with traditional Guadeloupian drums - gwo ka -fused with supremely avant-gardist jazz.
David Murray Black Saint Ouartet Live at Banlieues Bleues Festival (2010) A film in the form of a style exercise, or an exercise with style, pertinence and sensitivity, like a mirror in which jazz would be reflected.
