Album Review

Woody Shaw was one of the great trumpeters of the 1970s. Although his sound was influenced by Freddie Hubbard, Shaw's more advanced improvisations on his modal originals were quite original and fiery. This Muse set has three of his compositions (including "In Case You Haven't Heard") and a song apiece from pianist Ronnie Mathews and bassist Stafford James; altoist Frank Strozier and drummer Eddie Moore complete the quintet. The varied originals give the musicians strong foundations for their freewheeling and spontaneous solos, making this one of Woody Shaw's better recordings.

This has a lot going on in it - but the layers and changes that may make it challenging for a classic jazz fan, add to the richness and depth as you start to understand what Woody was saying. Lots of stuff going on here - no weak tea.
