Kenny Wheeler: Gnu High LP (Luminessence Series)
ECM Records, 1976
Gnu High is Kenny Wheeler's debut record for ECM, fronting a stunning quartet with Keith Jarrett on piano, Dave Holland on bass, and Jack DeJohnette on drums. The album put Wheeler on the map, as both lyrical improviser and jazz composer, and laid the foundation for the Canadian trumpeter's influential and highly regarded work to come.
