In 2000, David Murray, in the late 1970s a founder member of the World Saxophone Quartet, began exploring Guadeloupe’s traditional gwo-ka music, a relative of Haitian voudoun. After a couple of so-so albums, by 2003 Murray had the idiom down and released Gwotet with the French-based 14-piece the Gwo-Ka Masters featuring Sanders. Both discs are winners, with 2005’s ‘Yoruba Soul Remix’ ahead by a margin

The new Gwotet represents a (rather vast) extension of the Gwo-Ka masters project, so much so that it left me scratching my head and returning to the archives to check out the original anew. It doesn't bear too much in common except the return of the aforementioned masters (Klod Kiavue and François Ladrezeau) and a similar dedication to the subterranean African roots that inform the music of the New World diaspora. Where Yonn-Dé was almost ritualistic in nature, Gwotet has an air of jam sophistication. Along with the other unexpected surprises comes Pharoah Sanders and his tenor saxophone, a suitable complement to Murray's own outspoken voice. Murray sounds articulate but not bombastic; Sanders conveys a boldly simmering spirit with an distinct edge of his own.

Tenor saxophonist David Murray & the Gwo-Ka Masters mix together aspects of jazz with African rhythms (propelled by both Klod Kiavue and Hamid Drake on drums), occasional group vocals, a flexible horn section, and Christian Laviso's distinctive guitar. Most intriguing is the opportunity to hear both Murray and Pharoah Sanders taking raging solos over catchy but unpredictable grooves. Freed from playing jazz standards or very free improvisations, Murray really thrives in this exotic setting, which was inspired by his move to France.
