Waxwing (formerly Wilson/Lee/Bentley) unites three of Vancouver’s premier jazz musicians in a program of original compositions and improvisations that combine delicacy and strength, melodic beauty and textural sophistication. This is chamber jazz that moves between highly structured and freer playing but is always strong on form and direct emotional appeal, whether driving or more contemplative. The musicians often swap roles within pieces, exploiting the full range of expression for this unusual combination of instruments. Cellist Peggy Lee is a member of Wayne Horvitz’s Gravitas Quartet as well as his new Some Places Are Forever Afternoon project, also released this month. Audiophile (24/96) recording has great transparency.

‘The music is dreamlike, with the often effects-laden guitar playing a key role in the direction of the ensemble. Lee’s distinguished creative voice provides strength and flexibility, with a sound that is firm in the most delicate of textures and driving in the most rambunctious moments.’ (Wilbur MacKenzie, AAJ)

‘Bentley…has a lyrical, light touch that fits in perfectly as a contrasting voice against the intensity of Wilson’s keening guitar and the wizardry of Lee’s cello.’ (La Scena Musicale)
