Woody Shaw (live!) at last




Woody Shaw live.
Recorded in 1977

with;
Carter Jefferson, Larry Willis, Stafford James, Victor Lewis.

2 of my all-time favourite Woody Shaw tunes, fully extended and live. Love Dance and Why which is taken from the Muse lp, The Rise of Atlantis by Carter Jefferson.

Dig the super long artwork!

Am I right in thinking these are performances taken from the live Woody Shaw releases of a few years ago? Think they ran to three or four c.d's of live material..Or are these from another source?..Anyways regardless this was one killer band..And doing it at the hight of the electric-fusion vogue..Thanks Katonah.
