On this forthcoming album, David Murray offers to his quartet a new repertory and a new name: Infinity Quartet. This new quartet takes root deep into the Jazz tradition, and gathers around David Murray the finest line-up of contemporary jazz musicians: Nasheet Waits recalls Ed Blackwell on the drums; Marc Cary reminds us the very essential pianist John Hicks; and Jaribu Shahid the constancy of Ray Drummond. The album also features the soul singer Macy Gray and the jazz vocal singer Gregory Porter! Indisputably the most creative project of David Murray, where emotions and virtuosity will not let anyone indifferent.
What press says :

“ What a wonderful performance!” Live at CBS – THIS IS MORNING / LIVE FROM THE COUCH
“David Murray reminds me (and I suppose a lot of people) more of John Coltrane than anyone alive” THE NATION
“Macy Gray is in the midst of her own personal Renaissance (…) Watch out, jazz world, here she comes” NEWSDAY
