Extraordinary talented jazz trumpeter Woody Shaw recorded at the zenith of his personal development in 1982, accompanied by a sensational group of musicians.
The group includes drummer Tony Reedus, bassist Stafford James, the pianist Mulgrew Miller and the trombonist Steve Turre, who became one of the new young voices of the jazz trombone shortly afterwards.
Shaw's playing was characterised by technical perfection (just as those of his role model Freddie Hubbard) and a hands-on approach when it came to sound and tonality; Shaw was extremely fast when he wanted to be but never lost the clarity of his musical language. At the same time, everything he narrated on stage seemed to be told for the very first time - his colleague Randy
Brecker described Shaw as "the last in a line of trumpeters, who really added something new to the art of the jazz-trumpet".
