About

The notoriously self-critical trumpeter Kenny Wheeler maintained that Deer Wan (recorded in 1976) was his favourite among his own albums (“I like the overall form of this one best”). A tremendous band plays Wheeler’s tunes here. Kenny and Jan Garbarek sing together gloriously on the themes, and intermingle lines. The “Gateway” trio of John Abercrombie, Dave Holland and Jack DeJohnette drives the music with great verve. Guest Ralph Towner adds his distinctive 12-string guitar to a lilting Wheeler waltz.

Initially published in January 1978, the vinyl is reissued as an audiophile pressing taken from the original analogue tapes.
