Did YOU know that Kenny was leading an excellent, progressive-minded big-band in 1971? I certainly did not. The playing is top notch (look at that BAND!), the compositions are great, as Kenny’s always were, and ... well damn, you need this.

“Recorded live in London on the 24th May 1971. Previously unreleased. Stereophonic sound. Currently the earliest known recording of Kenny Wheeler leading his own big band.”
