The great Cecil Taylor compared Murray to his greatest predecessors who had signature sounds: “You stick your ear in the door, you know it’s David!”

“The concept of freedom expressed here involves drawing freely from myriad styles, minting them into music that is both uncompromisingly rigorous and directly communicative.” – Downbeat, July 2022

“David Murray, the master saxophonist who has reconciled the whole history of jazz tenor, from swing to free, during a wildly prolific career.” – New York Times
