Kenny Wheeler – Peace For Five

Thanks! Share it with your friends!


“Peace for Five” (Kenny Wheeler).

Album: “Deer Wan” (1978, ECM).

The Allmusic review by Scott Yanow states “Kenny Wheeler’s beautiful sound on trumpet and his wide range are well-displayed on his four compositions, three of which are given performances over ten minutes long… Wheeler emphasizes lyricism and romantic moods on this fine set of original music”.

Kenny Wheeler – trumpet, flugelhorn
Jan Garbarek – tenor saxophone, soprano saxophone
John Abercrombie – electric guitar, electric mandolin
Dave Holland – bass
Jack DeJohnette – drums

I cherished this cut from this album ever since the day I bought it in 1977. So glad it lives on here on YouTube.

Mars Weather says:

Let's face it. ECM had cornered the market for artistic music at it's height. And their vinyl was the best too. I wish I had bought more it.

Gabriel says:

Golly reminds me of the 90's

James Murray says:

How ironic I discover Mr Wleeler on hearing about his death. Some things are like that. He is certainly worth exploring and I wonder how I missed him in the first place. Some things are like that too.

williamfeuer says:

Never heard this before – great players! There's a substantial quote from Miles Davis's Sanctuary at the end, like around 15 min. Right?

Ravi V. Chhabra says:

Alll the great jammers under one tent….Abercrombie is supreme & smooth.

Great music. One of the very first ECM albums i've bought…Among many others: Dave Holland, Keith Jarrett, Paul Motian, JackDejohnette…And Garbarek was great that time.
