Generations: Dedicated to Woody Shaw


With 'Generations', his eighth Criss Cross outing as a leader, trumpeter Alex Sipiagin honors the legacy of the great Woody Shaw, reimaging five stellar pieces from Shaws repertoire and balancing the progam with four originals. The quartet lineup here is Sipiagin, guitarist Adam Rogers, bassist Boris Kozlov, drummer Antonio Sanchez at one time formed the core of the brilliant Michael Brecker Sextet. Together, these four players bring years worth of mutual collaborative experience to the music at hand. Woody Shaw himself appeared just once on Criss Cross, lending his extraordinary horn voice to Introducing Kenny Garrett (Criss 1014) in 1985. Shaws influence has long been implicit in Sipiagins playing not only in the Russian-born trumpeters work as a leader, but also in his scorching solos with Dave Hollands Big Band and Octet, the Mingus Big Band, the late Michael Breckers Sextet and Quindectet and many more. With 'Generations' Sipiagin makes his debt to Shaw more explicit, but he approaches these canonical works with his own individuality and imaginatioin foremost in mind, in the determined spirit of Shaws song title: 'Beyond All Limits' Tracks; 1.
