Last great trumpet innovator

"I would argue that the late Woody Shaw is the last truly unique trumpet innovator to date. While his cubist compositions help forge what I call the second wave of impressionism of modern jazz during the 70s (including McCoy Tyner, Freddie Hubbard, Joe Henderson, Wayne Shorter) his trumpet style had an innovative harmonic approach combined with an aggressive rhythmic attack, gorgeous sound, and sensitive lyricism. Love Dance covers the gamut from burning down the house up tempos to dreamy slow pretty ballad. It also features some great work by Tenor saxophone legend Billy Harper and rarely heard alto monster Rene McLean(son of Jackie). The other CD, Casandrite, which would be worth owning by itself, features a band with the legendary Joe Henderson - need I say more!
