Recorded in Tokyo, Five Stars is a studio album featuring the Miles Davis alumnus quintet V.S.O.P. playing a handful of original compositions. Featured here are former Davis bandmates pianist Herbie Hancock, bassist Ron Carter, drummer Tony Williams, and saxophonist Wayne Shorter, joined by trumpeter Freddie Hubbard. Released around the same time as the concert album Live Under the Sky, Five Stars showcases the group’s frenetic, modal post-bop, played in the spirit of Davis’ classic ’60s quintet.
