Canadian/pianist/vibist/composer Don Thompson: "For Kenny Wheeler"

Don Thompson, one of Canada's most prominent Jazz musicians leads an all- Canadian quartet on 8 intriguing Thompson originals. The album is called "For Kenny Wheeler" (dedicated to the great trumpeter/composer who was born in Canada) Three of the participants are Members of The Order of Canada (Thompson, drummer Terry Clarke and saxophonist/pianist Phil Dwyer). Thompson is heard here mostly on piano but with 2 tunes on vibes with Dwyer switching to piano.The bassist on this date is the wonderful Jim Vivian. Thompson is a great bassist himself and it's a compliment to Mr.Vivian that he was picked for this important session. Phil Dwyer is not only heard on two tunes on piano but on tenor and soprano saxophone for the rest and he proves himself to be one of Canada's foremost players. "For Kenny Wheeler" is a great recording and a great tribute to the high musical level of Canadian Jazz musicians.
