"It is with great difficulty that I type these words. David's family has informed me that he passed earlier tonight at Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital in New Brunswick, NJ. His physical body failed but his spirit was completely ready to move onward.I have had the pleasure of working on the recordings of David S Ware several occasions as a recording engineer - recording, mixing and mastering some of his recent albums which was always a tremendous insight into David's intimate and raw approach to improvising... a way of life. I am very grateful to have met such a great artist and human being.
There will be news forthcoming on a memorial service and we'll inform you of this when it becomes available.
"A giant" doesn't even begin to describe this man. David had a whole lot more to teach us. I know I had a whole lot more to learn from him, but am elementally and eternally grateful for all that he offered and revealed in his time here on this earth."
