November 7 would have been David S. Ware’s 64th birthday. This photo was taken at his home in 2000.
Ware grew up in New Jersey and played with Cecil Taylor and Andrew Cyrille in the 1970s before beginning his solo career. He led the David S. Ware Quartet from 1990 to 2007, recording nearly 20 albums with the group. He died of complications from a kidney transplant in October 2012.
