Crown Propeller has dropped a gem of a recording with Wynton Marsalis and Woody Shaw performing “Now’s the Time” (by Charlie Parker) at Fat Tuesday’s. The recording, from April 10th, 1980, features Marsalis sitting in with the Woody Shaw Quintet.
“Ever since I wrote this post, people asked me if could possibly put up one of the tracks with 18 year old Wynton Marsalis featured with the Woody Shaw Quintet at Fat Tuesday’s. So here for your pleasure are Woody Shaw (tp), Wynton Marsalis (tp), Carter Jefferson (as), Larry Willis (p), Stafford James (b) and Victor Lewis (d) playing Charlie Parker’s “Now’s The Time” as requested by Marsalis. Recorded on Apil 10, 1980 at Fat Tuesday’s in New York City.”
