The Netherlands 1985 [Goody Speed/Pitch-adjusted Remaster, 1CD]

De Twentse Schouwburg, Enschede, The Netherlands; March 29, 1985. Very good FM broadcast.

Thanks to original uploader frekem; and to Goody for sharing the show at Dime.

frekem’s original comments:

The Woody Shaw-Joe Farrell Quintet at “De Twentse Schouwburg” in Enschede, the Netherlands, for Dutch TROS radio (program Sesjun), March 29, 1985. The concert was broadcast directly for c. one hour. The mc is Cees Schrama. From my own taping of the broadcast. Enjoy!

Woody Shaw is widely known as one of the most important and influential jazz trumpeters and composers of the twentieth century. He is often credited with revolutionizing the technical and harmonic language of modern jazz trumpet playing, and to this day is regarded by many as one of the major innovators of the instrument. He was an acclaimed virtuoso, mentor, and spokesperson for jazz and worked and recorded alongside many of the leading musicians of his time.

By the late 1980s, Shaw was nearly blind from retinitis pigmentosa, an incurable degenerative eye disease. A user of heroin throughout his adult life, Shaw was in poor health when he returned to the U.S. in early 1989 from a lengthy stay in Europe - he needed a wheelchair at the airport. On the morning of February 27, 1989, Shaw was struck by a subway car in Brooklyn, New York, which mangled his left arm and caused other injuries including head trauma; doctors were forced to amputate his arm. During his hospital stay at Bellevue, Shaw suffered kidney failure, was put on a respirator and lost consciousness for more than a month. He died from kidney failure on May 10, 1989 at the age of 44.

American jazz multi-instrumentalist Joe Farrell primarily performed as a saxophonist and flutist. He is best known for a series of albums under his own name on the CTI record label and for playing in the initial incarnation of Chick Corea’s Return to Forever. Farrell died of myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS) in 1986 at the age of 48.

  15. Thanks for posting this excellent show. I had no idea these two great musicians (Shaw and Farrell) had ever played / toured together. And the sound is better than ‘very good’.
