This is the only Woody Shaw CD I've purchased to date, so I cannot comment on its relative value compared to his other work as a leader. However, I have no real qualms about giving it a 5-star rating. It's a strong, enjoyable set, and the recording (made in Rudy Van Gelder's studio in 1986) nicely captures Woody's splendid trumpet sound. Woody was great! I agree with the previous reviewer that the ballad "It Might As Well Be Spring" is the high point, but it's all very good. I really enjoy young Kenny Garrett (alto sax) on this recording--his playful, jaunty lines and round-ish tone almost steal the show on three of the tracks. Kenny Barron (piano) has some nice solo space and his style contributes to an overall modern sound. The drumming is interesting and a strong asset (but never dominating), while the bass is heard fairly prominently in the mix. While not earth-shattering, this is great-sounding, accessible, modern jazz played at a very high level.

Update: I've recently acquired Shaw's STEPPING STONES: LIVE AT VILLAGE VANGUARD, recorded a few years before SOLID. These are very different albums, but both, I think, are deserving of 5 star ratings. STEPPING STONES is much more cutting-edge (check out some of the rave Amazon reviews), while SOLID is more mainstream. All depends on your taste, but if you're like me, you'll dig `em both.

A classic Shaw album that I am grateful to 32 Jazz for re-releasing and getting out there and into people's ears. There Will Never Be Another You displays a beautiful solo by Woody, complimented by Kenny Garrett's flowing high-energy lines. A must for the jazz collection.
