Event Description

Woody Shaw, while never having reached the level of mainstream fame that other trumpeters in the jazz world achieved, is still generally agreed to have been brilliant as a composer, and unparalleled as a player.  Not only was Shaw technically brilliant, but he also created a style of improvising that was completely unlike any other jazz trumpet players of his own time or even since.  This concert will pay tribute to this trumpet master, featuring two burning sets of his most characteristic compositions played by a quintet, which was his favored ensemble type.
