Kenny Wheeler - Gnu High

The cover of this album sticks out in my memory, but I'd never heard it before this morning. A particularly strong set from the Standards trio and some lovely flugelhorn soloing by the late Mr. Wheeler. This is my introduction to his playing, and I'm ready for more. I'm also particularly taken by Jarrett's solo exploration about 8 1/2 minutes into "Heyoke." There may be a spate of autumn jazz albums on this blog, be forewarned.
