|David S. Ware chronology|
Third Ear Recitation is an album by American jazz saxophonist David S. Ware recorded in 1992 and released on the Japanese DIW label. This is the first recording by the David S. Ware Quartet with Whit Dickey replacing former drummer Marc Edwards.
Ware, who learned circular breathing from Sonny Rollins at the age of sixteen, tackles the Rollins composition "East Broadway Run Down" at almost twice the tempo Rollins did on the album of the same name in 1966. Ware was a lifelong student of rhythm, "The Chase" is dedicated to early associate, drummer Beaver Harris, who died in December, 1991. The quartet also plays two standards, Matt Dennis' "Angel Eyes", and two completely different takes of Joseph Kosma's "Autumn Leaves".

In his review for AllMusic, Thom Jurek states "This is one of David S. Ware's most notorious, yet well-developed and executed recordings." The Penguin Guide to Jazz says about the album that "was some sort of confirmation of Ware's growing interest in a more linear and at the same time harmonically refined approach to jazz."
