Surrendered is an album by American jazz saxophonist David S. Ware which was recorded in 1999 and became his second and final release on the Columbia label. This is the first record by the David S. Ware Quartet with drummer Guillermo E. Brown replacing Susie Ibarra. Ware plays Charles Lloyd's "Sweet Georgia Bright", a piece included on Lloyd's debut Discovery!, and a long rendition of Beaver Harris' composition "African Drums", which Ware originally recorded with the drummer in 1977 as a duo.

Perhaps one of avant garde jazz's most important hornplayers, David S. Ware is still spreading the gospel with his newest album "Balladware". This session reveals a rarefied side of the David S. Ware Quartet, whose beauty and majesty transcend all notions of free jazz. The notes soar and dip with Mr. Ware's unique espressionism, bringing us yet another brilliant package from the living legend. Throughout his esteemed career, David. S. Ware has succeeded in providing purists of the jazz form with his own one-of-a-kind style of improvisation and composition

(00:08:27) - Godspelized. Ware: BalladWare by Troy Collins, published on September 24, 2006. After a 1999 European tour, the members of the David S. Ware quartet set out to capture their tumultuous live energy in the studio. Post-tour exhaustion derailed their attempts to record a high-energy performance, so they agreed upon a ballad session instead. As a result, BalladWare is the most nuanced and restrained performance by this quartet ever caught on tape. Tenor saxophonist David S. Ware is joined by his usual quartet members, pianist Matthew Shipp, bassist William Parker and drummer Guillermo E. Brown, on a set of delicate yet impassioned ballads

With Ware's background in the 70's New York loft scene and as a Cecil Taylor sideman, some listeners might be put off from viewing one of today's most distinctive tenor voices as a 'far-out' player. Will this album, with its emphasis on ballads, do anything to entice such an audience towards his music? Well, this is not a CD of 'standards' as such; three of the seven tracks are original material, and "Angel Eyes" is what they call in international politics 'disputed territory'

Matthew Shipp, who plays organ and synth exclusively (for the first time on record?), opens this disc with organic flowing effects that sound more like the beginning to a Chemical Brothers album.
