David S. Ware Seeks Kidney Donor

2009-02-08

Re–blog from Signal to Noise.

This is so sad. For me Ware, together with Anthony Braxton, is the definition of jazz. They are the two most expressive saxophone players I’ve ever heard. I beg you, please, please do whatever you can to help. I’ll quote from Signal to Noise:

Ware is seeking interested donors who are under 60 years of age and who are in generally good health without diabetes and high blood pressure. The transplant would take place at New Jersey’s highly-regarded Robert Wood Johnson Hospital. If you think you can help, get in touch with Joerg at 718 854 2387 or at aum@aumfidelity.com.

You can read more about Ware on the Signal to Noise post or at his web site. I’m with you mentally and spiritually David, I need you, the world needs you!
