Silence is an album of duets by saxophonist David Murray and pianist Mal Waldron recorded in Brussels and released on the Canadian Justin Time label.[1] Recorded in 2001 but not released until 2008, six years after Waldron's death, the album features some of his last recorded performances.

Reception[edit]

The Allmusic review by Michael G. Nastos awarded the album 4 stars stating "these two play as one marvelously, with all the depth and substance you could ever wish for. Listeners should be glad these sessions were unearthed, for they are welcome additions to the legacy of two great creative jazz icons.".[2] On All About Jazz, Jerry D'Souza said "The album is sublime, energetic, and, in the final analysis, unforgettable".[3]
