Woody Shaw Live - Volume 3 

With each year that passes, trumpeter Woody Shaw is missed more. One of jazz's greatest trumpeters, Shaw was at his prime in the 1970s when Woody Shaw Live, Vol. 3, a previously unissued set (the third of three) was recorded. Performing live at San Francisco's Keystone Korner, Shaw stretches out on five lengthy group originals (three are his) with either Mulgrew Miller or Larry Willis on piano, bassist Stafford James, drummer Victor Lewis, and (on three of the five numbers) trombonist Steve Turre. Shaw is in fiery and explorative form throughout the challenging material, reminding listeners what a major improviser he was, and what a major loss it was when he died prematurely.
