    Trumpeter Gene Shaw honed his chops in Charles Mingus's band in the late 1950's before releasing this solo debut in 1962. BREAK THROUGH has the hallmarks of many early `60s hard-bop outings: complex yet groove-oriented, lyrical yet surprising. Shaw leads a quintet through eight sophisticated workouts, encompassing ballads, blues, Latin-inflected pieces, and bop burners, and Shaw's thoughtful, poetic approach to the horn makes each shimmer. Though he's a relatively minor player in the hard-bop school, Shaw--and BREAK THROUGH--should not be overlooked.
