World Saxophone Quartet

The original World Saxophone Quartet (from left, Julius Hemphill, David Murray, Oliver Lake and Hamiet Bluiett), with a medley, closing with their best-known Hattie Wall. (Warning: the third song in the medley is free jazz Cecil Taylor would love). The personnel has changed over the years — most notably, after Hemphill’s illness and death in 1995; with Arthur Blythe, among others, joining.
