On January 7, 2013, a memorial for saxophonist David S. Ware was held at St. Peter’s Church in Manhattan. Friends and collaborators from the entirety of his career performed, including multi-instrumentalist Cooper-Moore, saxophonists Rob Brown, Daniel Carter and Darius Jones; pianists Matthew Shipp and Eri Yamamoto; vocalist Fay Victor; guitarist Joe Morris (who also performed on bass); bassist William Parker; and drummers Muhammad Ali, Guillermo Brown, Andrew Cyrille and Warren Smith. Ware’s longtime friend and manager, and owner of AUM Fidelity Records, Steven Joerg, hosted the event and spoke, as did poet Steve Dalachinsky, Parker, Shipp, and Ware’s widow, Satsuko.

Below is a gallery of photos from the event.
