David Murray Cuban Ensemble
One a new album based on Nat “King” Cole’s en Español series, the always-formidable tenor saxophonist veers in the direction of Ben Webster with the help of a Cuban symphonette. It's a smooth, string-driven ride that provides Murray with plenty of space to stretch out, romanticize, and blow some of the most emotionally laden notes of his career, reconstructing the crooner's Latin love songs with a sizzling 10-piece group.
