Elemental Music proudly presents WOODY SHAW QUARTET - LIVE IN BREMEN 1983, a complete previously unissued live performance in Germany by the brilliant trumpeter, digitally remastered from the original master tapes. Although Woody Shaw's 1983 European tour presented his Quintet with trombonist Steve Turre, for unknown reasons Turre wasn't present on the January 18, 1983 Bremen show, which thus showcases Shaw in a quartet format all throughout, backed by Mulgrew Miller on piano, Stafford James on bass, and Tony Reedus on drums. Shaw only rarely recorded in a quartet format, making this issue an essential addition to his body of works.
WOODY SHAW, trumpet, flugelhorn MULGREW MILLER, piano STAFFORD JAMES, bass TONY REEDUS, drums
