Description of the Kenny Wheeler Project

I’ve been a big fan of Kenny Wheeler’s playing, writing and musical aesthetic from the beginning. Having had a chance to play a concert with him in Montreal years ago with the Altsys Orchestra (directed by Bill Mahar and Jennifer Bell) is an experience that continues to inspire me. The Septet that was put together for this project includes some of my favourite players in Ottawa and Montreal, all of whom have a similar connection with and admiration for Kenny and his music.

In the spirit of Kenny Wheeler, rather than doing cover versions of the music, I decided to slightly arrange his music to suit the personnel and instrumentation of the ensemble. Kenny left us so much beautiful music that it was difficult to choose what to play but more difficult to choose what to leave out! In the end, it doesn’t really matter because every piece he wrote is a total gem!
