Overview

One of five Woody Shaw albums on Columbia, this fine set finds the trumpeter's regular quartet (with pianist Larry Willis, bassist Stafford James, and drummer Victor Lewis) augmented by several horn players (Carter Jefferson on tenor and soprano, trombonists Curtis Fuller and Steve Turre, altoist Gary Bartz, and flutist James Spaulding), the percussion of Naná Vasconcelos, and, on two tracks, up to six strings. In addition, Judi Singh adds eerie vocals to "Time Is Right" and "Why?" Six separate sessions were needed to complete the LP, and the personnel varies on each track. There are originals performed by Shaw, Singh, Willis, and Lewis, but it is the trumpeter's feature on "We'll Be Together Again" with the strings that ends up being most memorable.
