Sunday Sleep In ~ “What Now?” ~ Kenny Wheeler

Kenny Wheeler and John Taylor

Who needs drums when you don’t even notice they’re not there. Kenny Wheeler composes such rich in-depth songs with artists who cast you into a spell, it actually makes it sound as if you hear some cymbals in the background. Dave Holland’s spectacular double bass playing does exactly that.

On this particular piece both Wheeler and Chris Potter play off each other beautifully, add John Taylor’s piano and you have magic.

This self entitled track album was recorded in June of 2004 when Wheeler was 74 years-old & released in 2005.

Born in Toronto, Ont. he started his career in the 1950s, put out his first album with his own band in 68′, in 2013 his 37 & 38th were released.

The collaborations with other artists over the last six decades are countless. If you don’t think music is a passion, think again. Music keeps you alive.

At 84 this mans talent ages like fine wine.
