Steve Turre demonstrates once again why he is one of the first call trombonists in the world on his fifth recording for HighNote Records, WOODY'S DELIGHT. This record is an aptly named homage to his mentor and former boss, Woody Shaw. Steve offers an intensely interesting program featuring five of today's greatest trumpeters in a program that captures at once Woody's fierce intensity, his limitless imagination and versatility and refracts it through the creative mind of Turre who delivers a tribute record which goes far beyond playing familiar repertoire but rather recalls the very spirit of its subject. On hand to help are the trumpeters Jon Faddis, Wallace Roney, Claudio Roditi, Freddie Hendrix and Chocolate Armenteros.
Steve Turre, trombone & shells. Featuring Jon Faddis, Wallace Roney, Chocolate Armenteros, Claudio Roditi & Freddie Hendrix - trumpets. With Buster Williams, Corcoran Holt, Dion Parson, Duduka Da Fonseca, Luis Perdomo, Andy Gonzalez et al.
