2019 release.

Drummer Louis Hayes, best known from his work with Cannonball Adderley presented together with his co-leader, tenor-saxophonist Junior Cook, known from his work with Horace Silver, a fantastic hard bop quintet, which featured young Woody Shaw on trumpet. The trumpeter turned 32 in the year this recording was made and was already on track for a career, which would make him one of the most important representatives of contemporary jazz (silenced way too early!). Shaw died in 1989, not even 45 years old. Already almost completely blind, he lost an arm in a subway-accident. Shortly afterwards his body just gave up.

Recordings of Shaw together with his own ensemble are among the highlights of the Onkel Pö-series and more will follow soon. Shaw is exemplary for the musician at the crossroad between tradition on the one side and change on the other. He was able to perform freely but still keep a close attachment to the masters who had influenced and formed him. Until today he is one of the great forbears and casts a long shadow on young musicians, who again and again explore the narrow path which separates tradition and progress. Recorded March 11, 1976 at Onkel Pö's Carnegie Hall, Hamburg, Germany; Recorded by NDR Hamburg.

Personnel: Woody Shaw - trumpet; Junior Cook - tenor sax; Ronnie Matthews - piano; Stafford James - bass; Louis Hayes - drums. Features extended liner notes in English and German by Michael Laages. Double-CD version includes 12-page booklet.
