Darcy James Argue on Kenny Wheeler

Recommended Posts

Like Darcy James Argue, the Opening of Kenny Wheeler's Music For Large and Small Ensembles had a profound and long-lasting impact on my writing and general musical appreciation. His last points resonate as something I think we're all striving to learn and understand in writing music. Digging into Kenny Wheeler's music is a great way to start: 

  • how to take stuff that is complex and make it sound simple
  • how to take stuff that is methodically constructed and make it sound organic
  • how to take stuff that is conventionally “wrong” and make it sound uncomplicatedly beautiful
