I was recently invited to a “Frogger” ride for BIPOC (black indigenous people of color). A “Frogger” ride is a ride that hops from road to wet dirt, singletrack to gravel roads, ...

Woody Shaw: Bremen, 1983

Trumpeter Woody Shaw had an urgent sound, even on ballads. There was a take-charge quality about his approach, but unlike many other horns of the 1970s and '80s, his attack wasn't all ice and heat. Shaw had an enveloping warmth as well. Whenever I listen to him, I can't take his music off. I'm too engaged. He takes you on a thrilling journey with velocity and color. His notes move like hurled darts. [Photo above of Woody Shaw by Jan Persson/CTSImages.com] Shaw formed his second great quintet i...

The personnel on both songs featured Roland Kirk (c-fl,African fl on the...
