All-star sessions often imply a competitive to-and-fro, but Angel Song is a fluid, lyrical, empathetic gathering of players, each revered on his respective instrument. Trumpeter Kenny Wheeler, who wrote the probing, Euro-jazz-tinged tunes, is joined by alto saxist Lee Konitz, guitarist Bill Frisell, and bassist Dave Holland in an inspired, drumless setting. These kindred, introspective spirits proceed to make music of a lofty order.
