David S. Ware was a respected American free jazz saxophonist who began making records in 1971.   Likened to such sax greats as John Coltrane and Sonny Rollins, Ware was educated at the Berklee College of Music.  During the late ’90s, he formed the David S. Ware Quartet who went on to release many critic and fan-approved albums well into the 2000s.  His catalog of albums includes two for Columbia Records thanks to being signed to the label by Branford Marsalis.  After ending the band in 2007, Ware recorded a handful of solo albums while playing with others.  David S. Ware was 62 when he died of complications from a kidney transplant back in 2009.
