Elemental Music presents a complete previously unissued quintet performance in Japan by the great Woody Shaw. This remarkable concert features Shaw's classic group with trombonist Steve Turre, pianist Mulgrew Miller, bassist Stafford James, and drummer Tony Reedus. The album includes a 16-page booklet containing special essays by famed jazz producer Michael Cuscuna & by Shaw's son Woody Shaw III, and is presented simultaneously on vinyl and CD (the CD version contains an extra track from the Tokyo concert and a bonus track, both also previously unreleased).

"Woody’s passing at age 44 on May 10, 1989 makes the discovery of these new recordings of his music an invaluable addition to his amazing legacy.” (Michael Cuscuna, 2018)
