Windward Passages

This album, saxophonist David Murray with pianist Dave Burrell, is not to be confused with Burrell’s own album of the same name (recorded in 1979 but released in 1994). The pair first recorded together in Murray’s late ‘80s octet and became regular collaborators, a testament to their catholic approaches to their respective instruments. Apart from two takes of John Coltrane’s “Naima” and Jelly Roll Morton’s “The Crave”, the music is all original, including two tunes co-written by and featuring vocalist Monika Larsson.
