Entertainment Reviews:

Entertainment Weekly - p.69
"Murray's alternating currents -- reflection and rage -- plug into powerful context." -- Grade: A-
JazzTimes - p.74
"[T]his is a spirt-infused outing....The stylistic range spans from ethereal meditation through jaunty, Spanish-tinged swing to freedom-bound ecstasy."
Vibe - p.133
"'Transitions' rides a breezy West Indian groove, and 'Family Reunion' dips into upright jazz-funk..."

Product Description:

David Murray: David Murray (bass clarinet); Lafayette Gilchrist (piano); Ray Drummond (bass guitar); Andrew Cyrille (drums).
Additional personnel: Cassandra Wilson (vocals).
In the 1970s, tenor saxophonist David Murray established himself as one of jazz's edgiest, most forward-looking musicians and composers, and time has not diminished his fervor. While Murray's big-toned approach has become a tad smoother, he still breathes fire and talks in tongues. Yet unlike some avant-garde players, he also has a blues-charged gregariousness. SACRED GROUND features Murray's regular working group with special guest Cassandra Wilson, whose sultry, smoky, slightly husky vocals grace two songs. Pianist Lafayette Gilchrist, earthy and luminously lyrical, makes an ideal replacement for the late John Hicks, and drummer Andrew Cyrille (long-time drummer for Cecil Taylor) here epitomizes taste and crisp swing.
