Anthony Braxton on Woody Shaw

Thanks, Woody Shaw III for sharing this historically significant reference. Quoting Professor Braxton, from his interview:

"He was a brilliant man. And he was fighting for his music, even though he had proved so much, there was still a struggle he was involved with to get the jazz world to acknowledge him, that he was separate from Freddie Hubbard, that his music was evolving in its own space. He was involved in his own struggle to advance his music."
