Overview

Woody Shaw's first album for a major label, Rosewood features the trumpeter with a sextet (either Joe Henderson or Carter Jefferson on tenor, pianist Onaje Allan Gumbs, bassist Clint Houston, and drummer Victor Lewis) on two numbers and with a "concert ensemble" (which reaches as many as 14 pieces) on the other four selections. Shaw is in top form throughout, particularly on "Rosewood," "Rahsaan's Run," and "Theme for Maxine." Rosewood was a consensus Jazz Album Of The Year in 1977. This modal music ranks with his best work.
