Melodic and pretty, even though much of it is improvised. Kenny Wheeler hangs out with the British free-improv crowd (this CD is released on Evan Parker's label) but has gravitated to a softer, more song-oriented style, evidenced by his floaty/dreamy albums on the ECM label. This one's a lot like those, recorded with a cast of mostly unknowns, at the same studio over the course of 8 years.

1- Soft, slow. Appropriately dreamy, very ECM-like.
2- Trumpet/drum duet, a softly cooking piece
3- Trio w/sax and guitar.
4- Smoky romantic jazz w/guitar
5- Gentle, w/piping flute
6- Strayhorn cover, slow and sentimental
7- Solo flugelhorn, starts sad & heats up
8- Casually stormy jam w/the full sextet
