Jazz at 100 Hour 92: David Murray & the World Saxophone Quartet

From WTJU | Part of the Jazz at 100 series | 58:59

Perhaps no jazz musician recorded a more varied output in more diverse setting in the 1980s than tenor saxophone and bass clarinet player David Murray. Three of the best bands to emerge in the decade were his Octet, his Quartet and the collaborative – the World Saxophone Quartet. He may also have been the most recorded jazz artist of the decade, as well, and with consistently high quality.
