5.0 out of 5 stars 5 Million Stars for Woody!, January 5, 2008

This review is from: In My Own Sweet Way (Audio CD)
I've been a Woody Shaw fan since the '70's and have always been amazed at his distinctive sound, and flawless technical ability. In this live import set from 1987, Woody joins an unknown European rhythm section on a group of 7 originals and standards. The sound quality is excellent, the group sounding as if they have playing together forever. Everyone solos, but Woody is the star of the show, and the undisputed leader of post-bop trumpet. His take on the bop standard "Sippin' at Bells" is a great example of modern jazz trumpet playing, sounding as fresh as if it was recorded yesterday. Being the only horn in a session, especially on trumpet, can be demanding; Woody simply makes it look easy. Like all great musicians, Woody simply transcends the instrument and speaks directly from the heart. Highly Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars the lyrical side of Woody Shaw, July 30, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: In My Own Sweet Way (Audio CD)
Woody Shaw has never played more beautifully than on this, one of his last couple of recordings. Mastered in glorious 24 bit resolution, unheard of in 1987( the piano does sound a bit tinny). the tempos are mostly relaxed, only breaking into a gallop on Sippin' at Bells(another great Shaw solo). one of Woody's few quartet recordings, the rhythm section matches his skill and intensity. Not only should Woody Shaw be better known, this essential recording should be better known to Woody Shaw fans!

5.0 out of 5 stars The One to Get, October 29, 2012
This review is from: In My Own Sweet Way (Audio CD)
I love Woody Shaw and have nearly all his recordings. If you want only one taste of Woody, this is the disc to buy: mellow, yet piquant in a way only Woody could be. The superb rhythm section, by the way, is mostly Canadian, not European. All of them should be better-known.
