Recorded in New York, New York in 1987.

HOPE SCOPE is a fiery recording from 1987, full of boisterous yet controlled energy. Along with his work with the World Saxophone Quartet, David Murray is most well known for his work with his Octet and big band. HOPE SCOPE contains the entirety of jazz history within the parameters of Murray's compositions, and there are touches of Jelly Roll Morton in tandem with Duke Ellington and Charles Mingus, as well as a hefty dose of group improvisation. HOPE SCOPE continues the hard-bop sound as exemplified by LIVE AT SWEET BASIL VOL. 1 and MURRAY'S STEPS, and peppers it with touches of lyrical melody. The year HOPE SCOPE was released also saw the release of NEW LIFE, and THE HEALERS, his duo record with Randy Weston. Unlike other artists who might have suffered burnout from producing so much in a short period of time, Murray seems to thrive in states of hyperactivity. The pleasure and privilege is the listener's.

David Murray (tenor saxophone); James Spaulding (alto saxophone); Dave Burrell (piano); Ralph Peterson, Jr. (drums)
