CD of the Month - March 2015

The KCCK Featured CD for March is "Songs for Quintet" by the Kenny Wheeler. The disc serves as a swan song for the acclaimed trumpeter as it was recorded just nine months prior to his passing last year. It also marked Wheeler's return, after nearly fifteen years, to ECM Records, the label where he had truly honed his skills as a composer and bandleader. The result, as the All Music Guide describes it, "is an intimate, lyrical session that exemplifies all that made Wheeler such a distinctive voice in jazz," while All About Jazz says it's "a recording that stands amongst the rest of his discography as one of his absolute finest." "Songs for Quintet" is from ECM Records.
