5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful surprise September 9, 1999
Format:Audio CD
If you mainly associate Kenny Wheeler with quiet, reflective chamber jazz (such as his wonderful Angel Song album on ECM), you're in for a big surprise with this album. Kenny and frequent collaborators Norma Winstone and John Taylor produce some wild'n'crazy music with a superb university band that swings really, really hard (and plays in tune for good measure). The "Siren" bit appears to be a reference to the way he uses wordless (mostly) female vocals as additional instruments in the band, frequently with breath-taking effect. You might even be reminded of Claude Debussy's use of female voices in his third nocturne for orchestra, subtitled something like "Sirenes". This is a recording I think will remain one of my favorites for a long time, possibly even a candidate for a desert island list.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kenny Wheeler's "Siren`s Song" wails modernly March 31, 2013
Format:Audio CD
36 years ago,I first heard of K. Wheeler through his 1973 INCUS Records' "Song For Someone";a neat LP through his band,Norma Winstone,included!Norma is a neat vocalist AND vocaliser!I just learned today she worked in many other Modern Jazz bands,too.She is a soloist w/her own CD!
Kenny Wheeler's title track "Siren`s Song" is enough to say Max Roach AND Wayne Shorter are influences here on this CD album Title Song.I heard it earlier today and say it's FUN to hear anytime.I heard Heyoke;It's fine.1997 Justin Time compact disc a big surprise because of Track #3.
1. Ticketeeboo (nothing on this one)
2. Little Suite (nothing on this one)
3. Siren's Song (NEAT!)
4. Winter Sweet (nothing on this one)
5. Heyoke (A fine song)
6. Quatorze (nothing on this one)
7. Sumother Song (nothing on this one)
I have heard only 2 of 7 tracks of "Siren's Song" CD,as I typed earlier;I'm sure the rest is good.
Worth a listen,though!

3.0 out of 5 stars Siren's Song July 25, 2011
By david
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Good Jazz music. Reminded me of all the band components that can make great jazz music of the time. The Siren's Song was what I was after, but this version was not what I expected. OK though.
