Wikipedia : This day (May 10, 1989), in Bellevue Hospital, New York City, died Woody Shaw, an American jazz trumpeter, flugelhornist and cornetist.

Official Site : In 1963, after many local professional jobs, Woody worked for Willie Bobo (with Chick Corea and Joe Farrell) and also performed and recorded as a sideman with Eric Dolphy.

@allmusic : One of the most gifted and innovative jazz musicians of his generation, trumpeter Woody Shaw navigated the rapidly fluctuating jazz scene of the ’70s and ’80s to create a lasting body of work that extends his influence well beyond his tragic death at age 44.

@last.fm : Early in his career he was influenced by Clifford Brown, Fats Navarro, Booker Little, Dizzy Gillespie (whom Woody Jr’s father had gone to high school with), Freddie Hubbard, amongst others, yet the influence of saxophonist Eric Dolphy, with whom he played and recorded in the 1960s
