Corridors & Parallels

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Sam Samuelson
Now that David S. Ware seems removed from his relationship with Columbia Records, he turns in his most surprisingly inspired record thus far. Its not that one would expect Corridors & Parallels to be anything less than inspired -- as his tone is of the highest spiritual order. With that said, his last studio outing, Surrendered, was a tad on the boring side. While not bad, it veered into very familiar territory for Ware. There's something quite new with this one though, so don't be confused by the first few seconds of Corridors -- there was no mixup at the pressing plant.

All Music Guide - Sam Samuelson
Now that David S. Ware seems removed from his relationship with Columbia Records, he turns in his most surprisingly inspired record thus far. Its not that one would expect Corridors & Parallels to be anything less than inspired -- as his tone is of the highest spiritual order. With that said, his last studio outing, Surrendered, was a tad on the boring side. While not bad, it veered into very familiar territory for Ware. There's something quite new with this one though, so don't be confused by the first few seconds of Corridors -- there was no mixup at the pressing plant. Matthew Shipp, who plays organ and synth exclusively for the first time on record?, opens this disc with organic flowing effects that sound more like the beginning to a Chemical Brothers album. Shortly though, the familiar ringing of William Parker's bass puts this one back onto the right set. While something new is always fun, it turns out that these electronic sounds that Shipp plays are exactly what the doctor ordered for Ware. He is completely free to let loose with sheets of energy without the consideration of piano comps; meanwhile, Parker and Guillermo E. Brown who also lends some new percussive rhythms to this set play with and against each other with intense purpose. There are moments where this is just plain fun, like the conga-line-inspired "Superimposed." Then there are moments of thick cerebral soup where the group plays with bowed bass, abstract synth, and hypnotic rhythm while Ware sets in for some prolonged and beautiful blowing. This recording is not to missed.
