David Murray is one of the most successful musicians of his generation. Few musicians in jazz history have proven more vigorously productive and resourceful than Murray. Since last year’s initial return to his old stomping grounds, the Village Vanguard, Murray has expanded his Suite for Albert Murray (Stomping the Blues), to include new compositions, “Roots and Wings” and “Scooter and The Blues as Such." During this momentous week, David will also premiere brand new compositions, in preparation for his forthcoming debut recording of Class Struggle.

In 1991, David became the second recipient of Denmark’s Jazzpar Prize.
