Heick Joined by Extraordinary Trio!
Sometimes it takes extremely talented and worthy musicians a long time before
releasing an album in which they lead. Some of the musicians never do. Luckily,
Aaron Heick got together with the Japanese label Venus Records to release his
first album under his own moniker. Easily one of the best modern alto
saxophonists in the United States, Heick has performed and recorded with stars
such as Chaka Khan, Barbra Streisand, Paul Simon, Frank Sinatra, and Richard
In this one-horn quartet setting with the extraordinary John di Martino and his
Romantic Jazz Trio, Heick shows his phenomenal technique, solid sound, and
emotionally charged soulfulness. Some of the selections on this album include
Carlos Santana's "Europe," flutist Herbie Mann's funky "Comin' Home, Baby," a
song by the Beatles "And I Love Her," and the evocative "Infant Eyes," written
by Wayne Shorter. There are also two original compositions by Heick himself.
The powerful performances from the musicians are heightened by the classic sound
produced by Venus' engineering team. This is a fantastic and solid debut from an
incredibly talented musician's musician!
