    Kenny Wheeler was already an important player in various circles for a couple of decades before the release of his first solo album, the essential GNU HIGH in 1975. 1978's DEER WAN finds him again anchored by the stellar rhythm section of drummer Jack DeJohnette and bass player Dave Holland. Also on board this time are other ECM Records regulars, guitarist John Abercrombie and saxophonist Jan Garbarek.
    Wheeler's four compositions draw on his varied background, from post-bop outfits to free improv. The opening "Piece for Five," which maintains its relentless pace for its full 16 minutes, is followed by the ethereal, feather-light "3/4 in the Afternoon," that finds Ralph Towner joining the quintet on 12-string guitar. Wheeler and Garbarek's meshed instruments are beautiful, particularly on the luxurious title track.
