CD Reviews

Woody Shaw is no joke....
Michael Morales | Los Angeles, CA | 11/29/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I'd venture to say that at this period of his career he was the best trumpet player of all time. He was the total package...composer, brilliant technician, melodic and adventerous.
After hearing this album its hard for me to listen to Freddie Hubbard in the same way any more since Woody takes Freddies style up about 10 notches.
Woody's career was too short and inconsistant to be considered the Greatest of all time but at his peak (on this album) there was nobody better in my opinion.

By the way, I would not have happened upon Woody's music if it hadn't been for sites such as amazon, allmusicguide etc etc.
Needless to say this music isn't advertised at your local record store and is rarely stocked.
I ordered this album a few months ago off of amazon and since then I've picked up pretty much everything I can find with Woody on it.

One last note, the sound quality on this recording is incredible..it sounds better than most studio recordings.

Great post bop jazz.

Total agreement with all the reviewers!!!!!!

"It's so nice to read such wonderful, positive words about my homeboy, Woody Shaw! You guys wrote so well, all I can add is, buy the record, and hear what all the fuss is about. The best review, of course, is best post hard bop trumpeter (with the best hard bop trumpeter being Lee Morgan, his idol and my favorite musician). All the cuts are great, but my favorite is "Escape Velocity", the only cut released while Woody was here. It was on Woody III, my favorite Shaw record; if you can, buy that one, too!
OK, I think you get the gist--buy this record!"
D--n good recording
