Woody Shaw: "Stepping Stone"


About The Video

Woody Shaw was the next great voice on trumpet after Lee Morgan and Freddie Hubbard.

As this performance of "Stepping Stones" demonstrates, he was a distinctive composer and a trumpeter with extraordinary technique and imagination.

A magnificent performance from Italy by Woody Shaw's quintet with Carter Jefferson, Onaje Allan Gumbs, Stafford James and Victor Lewis.

Wow! Firebrand Woody with all his righteously complicated hard bop harmonies! Is that Clint Houston on bass? Can we have more?
