Reviews of David's album


"Album of the year?” - Jazz Weekly

"Let me tell you something, THIS GUY IS AN ANIMAL!!” - Jazz Weekly

"He’s got a strong, muscular and macho sound that mixes the R&B soul of an Arnett Cobb or Jimmy Forrest with a swinging jazz pulse a la Sonny Rollins. “ - Jazz Weekly

"He is so hip as he slithers on “Time #5” that you’re going to need a chiropractor to fix him, while he rolls in like a London Fog on “Seven Nation Army.”” - Jazz Weekly

"McMurray is also able to get romantic, yet still with wild abandon on the opening solo cadenza on “Que Je T’Aime” while able to do the Funky Chicken on “Atomic Dog.” Who let him off his leash?!?” - Jazz Weekly
