Kenny Wheeler Quintet


The Festival of New Trumpet celebrates the sage brass player with the luminous sound and the reliable inspiration. This week the octogenarian does time on stage with John Hollenbeck’s Large Ensemble and Ingrid Jensen’s Brass, but it’s his new group with Irabagon, Taborn, Holland, and Royston that’s been raising eyebrows. That autumnal radiance with those youthful provocateurs? Dave Holland? A must-see.
