180 gram Vinyl
This is the LP vinyl edition of the previously released CD.
A gem recording by Kenny Wheeler and John Taylor. The Canadian trumpeter had a long-standing recording activity on this label, often sharing this journey with Taylor. “On The Way To Two” is a duet album recorded in 2005, featuring 10 songs over a total 45 minutes of stunning music. Complex themes alternate with short improvised passages, as proof of that natural, special feeling that bound the two musicians. Sadly and unfortunately, while the CD album was being pressed, John Taylor suddenly passed away. Before Taylor left us, he wrote in the liner notes to this album, as a virtual remark to Wheeler: “It was a privilege and joy to play with you for most of my life, and I wish you were here now to listen to this music again with me”.
