Kenny Wheeler would open his tunes to interpretation by some of the top Jazz musicians of the time. He was widely admired and it only takes a quick listen to appreciate his accessibility.

Even after review the vibe was cool. Rest In Peace, Kenny Wheeler. We all know the future is now.
  • Gnu High, 1975 recording. Kenny Wheeler with Keith Jarrett, Dave Holland, and Jack DeJohnette. Played the whole thing. Brilliant isn't strong enough. Neither is stunning, nor is mindblowing. Heyoke and Gnu Suite are long pieces but the intensity never waivers. Smatter is only six minutes but its punch is not pulled. Throughout, the artistry is astounding.
  • David Borgo has some new music coming out and the Progressive Nights staff is understandably thrilled. Positive anticipation but I hope the new disc title is easier to say than Micro Temporal Infundibula. Hard to type, even.
  • Taylor Ho Bynum is riding his bike from Canada to Tijuana. Hope to get a word as he zooms past...Stepwise.
