Like few musicians in the history of music, Kenny Wheeler has been able to make his music a trademark.

An approach to his instrument, the trumpet that has marked artistic events for generations of musicians. A sound that transfixes today as it did yesterday and touches whoever comes into contact with this artist. But Kenny Wheeler is more than that. Music at it's purest, an instrumentalist but also as a composer and arranger. And the Long Waiting is a precious gem inside the corpus of the trumpeter's discography.

After having measured his composition for string quartet with the album Other People, Wheeler raises the stakes by facing a much larger format: The big band. The result is amazing, unique. A modern writing that embellishes the history of the jazz orchestra. It seems simple, listening to this work with particular attention to the melody, but in Wheeler's themes there is a compositional complexity that only a great craftsman of music is able to construct.
