The group just completed its 3rd CD, recorded in the Caribbean which features the legendary tenor saxophonists Pharoah Sanders. The result of David and Pharoahs last collaboration " Blues for Coltrane " was a 88 Grammy Award. On stage, the growth of the improvisation, composition and interaction is evident.
