Trumpeter/flugelhornist Woody Shaw’s second quintet was one of the great modern jazz ensembles of its time, grounded in the straight-ahead tradition of bebop, but embracing newer avant-garde concepts. When the group performed a January 1983 concert at Post Aula in Bremen, Germany, trombonist Steve Turre was not present. The quintet was reduced to a quartet, with Shaw the sole front-line horn player. "Recently discovered and previously unreleased, the music on this new two-disc deluxe set from Elemental is an interesting and exciting bit of jazz history." - DownBeat Magazine
