Randy Heddon And Fat Tuesday: Blue Moon On The Bayou

Classic Kutz for Contemporary Katz

A nouveau 1950's style CD that harks back to the Atomic Age with fresh takes on standards such as "Beyond The Sea" and "One For My Baby." Combined with Randy's classic voice and steller piano playing are great players such as Harry Scorzo (Celine Dion), Jimmy Street (Frank Sinatra), Jay "Rusty" Crutcher, and many others.

"Last year I wanted a new grand piano to replace one that I left in Los Angeles. I had always said someday I would do an album of standards, and this is that album, and I thank my "new" 97 year old Baldwin piano for inspiring me to finally create the album." – RANDY

Randy Heddon: Classic Kutz For Contemporary Katz

Classic Kutz for Contemporary Katz REVIEW 

By Robert M. Sutton Robert M. Sutton , CD/DVD Reviewer 

Pianist/vocalist Randy Heddon is a smooth operator. Classic Kutz for Contemporary Katz doesn't try to reach for the moon; instead, Heddon's ambitions are modest, and he achieves his simple goals with professionalism and stainless craftsmanship. Classic Kutz is a jazz record, but one that can also be tagged as Adult Contemporary. Mellow and calming, Classic Kutz has all the qualities you'd expect from a smooth jazz release; however, Heddon avoids the cookie-cutter uniformity that too often derails the genre. The Bob Russell/Duke Ellington classic, "Do Nothing Till You Hear From Me," opens the record with a cool breeze of lounge jazz; gentle sax and playful piano establishes Heddon's appetite for comfort and joy. George and Ira Gershwin's "Our Love Is Here to Stay" is adapted with a warm smile as Heddon's friendly talking/singing performance is cuddled by Ron Kalina's harmonica.  Heddon can also croon exceptionally well, as he does on "The Wee Small Hours of the Morning." 

The sprightly piano and summertime bounce of "The Santa Fe Special," a Heddon original, is a delightful surprise, perfectly aligned in style and class with the vintage covers contained on the CD. The witty "My Attorney Bernie" and Cole Porter's "At Long Last Love" find Heddon dancing with infectious Latin rhythms. 

Whether the track is slow or fast, it doesn't matter, because the overall effect is always the same: like a hot cup of coffee, it goes down nicely, waking up the senses while relaxing all of the nerves.
