About the Album
Joined by master improviser, John Stowell on guitar, and four pillars of the Bay Area jazz scene, guitarist Jason Keiser dives into the music and aesthetic of trumpeter Woody Shaw’s great recordings of the ‘70s. His most popular originals, “The Moontrane,” “Zoltan,” and “Katerina Ballerina,” as well as his live repertoire standards “Obsequious” and “Organ Grinder,” are orchestrated for the special grouping of the two guitars, Erik Jekabson on trumpet and Aaron Lington on baritone saxophone for the front line, with the powerful rhythm section of Dan Robbins & Jason Lewis providing a buoyant, churning momentum. Keiser offers his own “Shaw’s Groove” as a coda and a nod to Woody’s influence over generations, often considered to be the last great trumpet innovator.
