Elemental Music presents a complete previously unissued quintet performance in Japan by the great Woody Shaw. This remarkable concert features Shaw's classic group with trombonist Steve Turre, pianist Mulgrew Miller, bassist Stafford James, and drummer Tony Reedus. The album includes a 16 pg. booklet containing special essays by famed jazz producer Michael Cuscuna and Shaw's son Woody Shaw III. The CD version contains an extra track from the Tokyo concert and a bonus track, both also previously unreleased.
