Kenny Wheeler convened an all-star British band for this new album, recorded back in April 2008 at Bauer Studios in Ludwigsburg, Germany. For the occasion, the Canadian-born, English by adoption, trumpet and flugelhorn player lined up Stan Sulzmann, on tenor and soprano sax, Bobby Wellins on tenor sax, John Taylor on piano, Chris Laurence on double bass and Martin France on drums. This is a Kenny Wheeler, who, at the time of the recording, was almost 80 years old and yet still brilliant and elegant. The album opens with a classic call and response , with wind and brass pursuing each other, calling to each other and interacting ( Seven, Eight, Nine - Part 1 is the title of the track, the first of eight, all penned by the leader).
