LP features two exclusive tracks from the original sessions not present on the CD-release.
"The recording and release of Onecept celebrates David S. Ware's 50th year of singular and profound saxophone artistry; a studio session specifically arranged for same featuring Ware on three saxophones - saxello, stritch, tenor - along with fellow musical masters William Parker (stalwart fellow prophet) on bass and Warren Smith (also featured on Ware's album Shakti) on drums and tympani. Unlike almost every previous album Ware has made in the past 20 years (Corridors & Parallels being another exception), there was no rehearsal for this session; the songs/streams were created fully in the moment of creation, trusting in collective skill to manifest the majesty.
Onecept is an impeccable entry in the oeuvre of his recorded works. By the time you read this, the Trio will have made their public performance debut at the Vision Festival, NYC in June, 2010. Their next performance will take place at the Blue Note, NYC on October 4, 2010. Please, take my advice: be there if you are here then."-Aum Fidelity
David S. Ware on Onecept:
"The express intent is that time and space, which is a relative thing, on this record, the way in which I'm playing, time and space is collapsing. It is folding in on itself and that is bringing on a different reality."
William Parker on Onecept:
"We trimmed off a lot of the outside rays of the glow, and we're in the circle inside the light now. A different side of things is showing."
Steven Joerg on Onecept:
"Exquisite next phase in this modern Master's development. All new temples of sound. David wanted Warren to play tympani on this and I'm so glad that he did. Recording engineer Michael Marciano outdid himself here. Your brain can swim in this mix. (((3D SOUND))) indeed!"Also available on CD
Limited edition of 500 copies. Gatefold sleeve featuring an interview with David S. Ware by Steven Joerg.
