• David S. Ware at Elastic

At last year’s Umbrella Music Festival titanic New York saxophonist David S. Ware performed solo at Elastic Arts, marking his first local performance in a decade. It was also his first show outside New York since undergoing the kidney transplant that saved his life in May 2009. I didn’t make it to the concert, a decision I’ve had the opportunity to regret every time I hear how about how powerful Ware’s set was.

Some consolation arrives October 25, when Aum Fidelity releases Organica (Solo Saxophones, Volume 2), a 1,000-copy edition of a CD featuring music from the Elastic set and another performance at a private residence in Brooklyn. In the meantime, on August 30 a new documentary about Ware called David S. Ware: A World of Sound, directed by Amine Kouider, will debut on dlf.tv (the website of the David Lynch Foundation, the film director’s platform for transcendental meditation, which the saxophonist has practiced for four decades).
