David Murray, Santo Jazz Hitam

Posted: Januari 5, 2011 in Uncategorized

Ditengah banyaknya orang yang sok mengkritik Java Jazz terlalu ngepop dengan menampilkan Babyface,Toni Braxton,Diane Warren maupun John Legend,tapi saya secara jujur harus mengangkat jempol buat Java Jazz yang sejak tahun 2005 justeru banyak (pula) menghadirkan para ksatria jazz yang sarat idealism.Bisa sebut nama-nama seperti Joshua Redman,Ron Carter,John Scofield,Richard Bona,Roy Hargrove dan banyak lagi termasuk tahun 2010 ini yang menyelipkan nama David Murray Black Saint Quartet yang antara lain didukung drummer free jazz brilian Hamid Drake.David Murray yang selama ini hanya saya bisa simak dalam sederet CD-nya kini betul-betul bermain tepat dihadapan saya selama dua malam berturut-turut.
Saat pertamakali menginjakkan kaki di pelatarn JIEX Kemayoran,menu utama Java Jazz yang segera saya cicipi di hari Jumat 5 Maret 2010 adalah sajian dari David Murray Black Saint Quartet yang mulai menyiramkan guyuran jazz sekitar jam 18.00 WIB.
Tiupan saxophonenya mencengkeram benak dan jantung saya.Tonenya istimewa.Berkarakter kuat.Murray seperti menjembatani kuala jazz masa lalu yang disepuh dengan aura masa kini.Sebuah petualangan tekstur bunyi yang sulit untuk dideskripsikan tentunya.Dan Jazz,seperti genre music lainnya adalah dinikmati dan dihayati secara seksama.Itu pula yang saya lakukan saat menyimak penampilan David Murray.
Selain membanding-bandingkan David Murray dengan John Coltrane.Saya tiba-tiba teringat tulisan kritikus jazz Bill Milkowski yang dimuat di majalah Jazz Time Juni tahun 2000 yang membanding-bandingkan David Murray dan trumpetis Wynton Marsalis yang dikenal sebagai jazz purist itu : “Like Wynton Marsalis, David Murray can talk. It may be all they have in common, but the two certainly do share a gift for gab. And they are equally out-spoken. Get Murray going and he will talk about anything. But time is tight this morning and just running down his current activities and rash of recent releases will take up most of it.
Menyimak permainan David Murray kita pun mahfum bahwa pria berkumis ini memiliki wawasan musik yang luas yang kemudian banyak mempengaruhi karakter musik yang dimainkannya.Musik Murray menyeruak luas.Kadang menyelinap ruh gospel,kadang tercium aroma Timur Tengah yang eksotik.Dan dalam benak saya,Murray bagaikan sebuah katalisator yang mengubungkan berbagai anak sungai dalam muara yang begitu luas dan dalam.
Ketika saya tanyakan pada Murray apakah ada keterkaitan antara jazz dan world music ?.Matanya berbinar.Dia tampaknya suka dengan sergahan saya ini.Murray pun menukas :
“After you studied all of the world music you can what you find out is that most of that information is already in jazz.Rasanya itu pernah dilakukan baik itu (Wayne) Shorter,Eric Dolphy,Coltrane….hmmmm Yusef Lateef.Bahkan Duke Ellington juga dengan Far East Suite. I’m not the kind of guy that’s going to be running away from jazz because jazz is certainly the teacher. And other musics are something that we like to study where we can bring it in and incorporate it into our music but we as jazz musicians, we really have to remain focused on strictly jazz and really conquering what that is
“Bagaimana anda melihat Java Jazz Festival ? pamcing saya.
“Oh it’s great…..I’m very interested man !” puji Murray.
Percakapan singkat ini berlangsung pada Minggu malam 7 Maret saat saya tengah berada di depan Hall yang akan menampilkan konser Rufus.Murray pun berdiri didepan pintu ingin menonton konser Rufus .
“Do you like funk ?” tanya saya.
“Yeah……I like funk.I like Brown,Funkadelic and Sly Stone” jawab Murray.
David Murray menyatakan sangat suka bepergian dari satu negara ke negara lainnya memainkan jazz.
“When I see people from different countries, I get a thrill out of showing them what jazz is. I go to Senegal or Guadeloupe or Martinique and do some big band workshops over there. They’re hungry to learn. So I’m ready for the next John Coltranes to come from somewhere else. They might not be coming from North Carolina or New Orleans. Maybe they’ll come from Dakar or Nigeria or Guadeloupe or Martinique. Maybe they’ll come from Scandinavia and maybe from your conntry Indonesia , I don’t know. All I know is, I see these people, they’re eager all over the world for jazz. What I don’t see is that same kind of enthusiasm in US ”
Dan saya yakin David Murray berkata sejujurnya,dari lubuk hati paling dalam.
