Thanks to those of you who have contributed to Kenny's welfare at this difficult time. Here's an update from the Ottawa Citizen.
Sadly this bulletin has been superceded by this one.
As Sergio rightly says below, Kenny Wheeler was a true GIANT.
There are not many jazz musicians who have a foot in the freely improvised side of things and also compose and play some of the most beautiful and ravishing music in jazz, in anywhere.
Condolences to his family, friends and all his fellow musicians.
Thanks Kenny. You gave a lot and left a lot. Beautiful.
