Editorial Reviews

The year was 1977, and plugged-in jazz fusion was the local tongue in the mainstream jazz world. But trumpeter Woody Shaw, who'd by then done stints with Eric Dolphy, Bud Powell, Horace Silver, Art Blakey, Dexter Gordon, and others, breezed onto the Columbia jazz roster with this powerhouse recording. With a raft of Latin-tinged numbers, Shaw showed why he was the trumpet's leading mainstream proponent. Shaw's tone was ultraconfident, hard when it ought to be and then flowingly loose elsewhere. Shaw's bands for this session, which range from a quintet to a 15-piece, all embrace a wide flange of expertise, from fast, albeit rounded, rhythms to occasional flights outward by Joe Henderson and Shaw himself. Sure, some of these tunes sound dated, as if their architecture was in a struggle against fusion's melodies. But in this reissue, which on CD draws three cuts from Shaw's later For Sure! session, one can hear the roots of the acoustic jazz rebirth that came some years later with the burgeoning "young lions" scene. --Andrew Bartlett

5.0 out of 5 stars Celestial Harmonies July 2, 2003
Format:Audio CD
I have been an avid follower and listener of Woody Shaw since I heard his album Moontrane back in 1976 when I was in high school. If I'm not mistaken, he also plays cornet on this recording, as well as trumpet and flugelhorn. This was his first Colombia records recording, and they are all exceptional. Woody was a passionate, intriguing, intellectual and masterful soloist. Beautiful tunes and arrangements. Strong contributions from all the supporting musicians (Joe Henderson and Woody playing together is worth the price of admission right there!). Besides Onaje's tune, my faves are also "Rosewood", "Theme for Maxine" and "Rahsaan's Run". The addition of a few tunes from his "For Sure" album is a definite bonus. Still listening to Rosewood to this day. Check it out!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Jazz Classic April 23, 2005
Format:Audio CD
This was Woody Shaw's first recording on a major label. It features different combinations of groups from quartets to fourteen-piece esembles. The music cooking and hard-driving (Rosewood, Rashaan's Run), modal (Theme For Maxine), light-hearted (Every Time I See You). Woody was a brilliant composer and improviser. This album demonstrates that emphatically. Woody was the best trumpet player of his generation and he left us too soon. The solo from Joe Henderson on 'Theme for Maxine' is one his all-time greats - an added treat. On the CD, couple of bonus cuts are added from Woody III which are fine, but the material on Rosewood is definitely stronger.

5.0 out of 5 stars This recorded gem is a must for all lovers of Jazz. August 28, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This recording documents the major label debut of one of the finest improvisers to come onto the international jazz scene in the 60's/70's. Here Woody is heard in several differant ensemble formats. The sizes vary from the standard quintet(Trumpet/ tenor sax frontline), to larger groups which includes a variety of woodwinds/ percussion/ and even harp. Woody's arranging/composing is beautifully showcased throughout this classic release.The compositions are harmonically dense however they are still quite accessable melodically speaking. What stands out the most to me is Shaw's modern improvisational concepts that are derived from John Coltrane , McCoy Tyner, and Eric Dolphy to name a few. Standout performances are given by Woody's then working band~ The Late Carter Jefferson- Saxes, Onaje Allen Gumbs-Keyboards (his beautiful composition[included in ths CD] "Every Time I See You" has been putting a smile on my face for 20+ years), Clint Houston-Bass, Victor Lewis-Drums. Joe Henderson is featured on several numbers to really make this a complete package. This CD release includes 3 bonus tracks that were chosen from Woody's Columbia LP "For Sure". This helps the first time listener to hear the developing direction of one of America's True Jazz Legends...I hope that Columbia decides to release it's entire Woody Shaw catolog on CD..It's about time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Jazz album with modal/fusion/funky flavours February 1, 2000
Format:Audio CD
Have to concur with the reviewer below. This is a cracker of a CD. I first heard this about 3 years ago and the track that first appealed to me was like the previous reviewer "Everytime I see You". I haven't heard that much else from Woody, but if this CD is anything to go by then I'll certainly be buying some of his other stuff. Great support from the some legendary fusioneers Onaje, Carter Jefferson to name but two and then there are the bonus tracks from a later Woody album. Great solos, nice sound!

5.0 out of 5 stars New Again September 13, 2005
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Having listened to this album for years on vinyl I was blown away with what the CD sonics reveales. This is one of Shaw's best and now it is even better with the CD quality. It's an "all new" old chestnut that sounds just as fresh and creative as it did in the 60's. He's as creative and more accessable then Miles Davis

5.0 out of 5 stars Now i Know now what miles was saying! August 25, 2013
By John L.
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Now I know what miles was saying about Mr.Shaw When he once made a comment saying "now that's a great trumpet player he plays different than anyone else that I have ever heard" I have been listening to some of Mr. Shaw's music for years but never owned any of his music. I am deeply sorry Woody Shaw that it took me so long.This CD Blew me away!! if your a Lee Morgan,Donald Byrd Fan, This man is wright next to them when you talk about a Trumpet Master You better get this CD if you don't you will be missing out on a true master.
