Confusion reigns in the case of drummer Woody Theus, who's also recorded as Son Ship Theus and Woodrow Theus. Whatever, his playing hasn't changed as much as his name; it's rooted in hard bop and blues, with a strong backbeat and he's provided good rhythmic assistance and support when working with Curtis Clark, Harold Land, Charles Lloyd and Woody Shaw. Theus has no sessions available as a leader on CD.
