Bobby Zankel and the Warriors of the Wonderful Sound Featuring David Murray

Bobby Zankel & Warriors of the Wonderful Sound  are proud to present the masterful tenor saxophonist David Murray in concert. This evening of live jazz is a perfect mix of high energy ensemble, and solo compositions. Zankel and Murray first played informally together in 1975 when Murray arrived in New York, just prior to Zankelʼs move to Philadelphia. The two musicians worked together during Murrayʼs historic residency at the Painted Bride in the early 1990ʼs.
