"Gwotet", the third album instalment of the Creole Project, represents the saxophonist’s quintessential exploration of his roots. The Jes Grew spirit is ever present: the ghost of the runaway slave, the vehement force of the ka drums; the glowing saxophone weaving the Havana tones of the brass section into the virtuoso guitar work. David Murray’s tenor saxophone ignites the atmosphere with free blasts while the Guadeloupean boulagyel, the traditional, tropical version of the beat box, throws out a line to hip hop. Every David Murray concert is a new exploration of Creolisation, in its most vibrant form.

Gwotet (Justin Time/Harmonia Mundi)

"Gwotet", troisième volet discographique du Creole Project, est la quintessence de la quête identitaire du saxophoniste. L’esprit du Jes Grew est là, fantôme d’esclave marron qui exhorte à grands cris les tambours ka, saxophone irradié tissant les couleurs havanaises des cuivres aux broderies d’une guitare d’exception. Le ténor de David Murray incendie l’atmosphère d’éclairs free tandis que le boulagyel de Guadeloupe, forme tropicale et traditionnelle du beat box, lance une corde d’amarrage vers le hip hop. Chaque concert de David Murray est une nouvelle exploration de la créolisation, dans sa forme la plus vive.
