This review is from: The Complete Columbia Albums Collection (Audio CD)
Woody Shaw deserves to be counted among a select number of jazz immortals along with the likes of Louis, Lester. Miles and Charlie Parker. Sadly he has never gained the full recognition that his brilliant technique, striking improvisations and original style merit. Part of this derived from his own personal problems that culminated in his untimely death at 45.
The current collection includes some of the best of Woody Shaw's work, during his all too brief time in the spotlight as a major Columbia recording artist. It embraces the Mosaic collection of complete studio performances and the later CD release of Live at the Vanguard (1978) while adding a generous selection of unissued titles from the Vanguard,and all in much improved sound. Added to this is the attractive bargain price. I would certainly list this welcome release among my all time favourite jazz box sets.
