Review Road

EXCERPT from REVIEW by "POSITIVELY ENTERTAINMENT" 

...The tunes speak of making journeys and the hope that each path brings to light along the way. 

... If this CD was a motion picture score, you wonder what the story would be? True, it has a pervasive sense of dreaminess, with romantic flashes of obscurity... Heddon’s voice is mostly soft and understated in his delivery. He cultivates the dissolving sense of the intellectual in favor of the existential. Beautiful crying violin, soprano sax and splashing waves of piano phrases captivate the listener. 

...Heddon’s vocalizations, for most of the songs, are soft and even.... where Heddon really leans on a note, his voice is strong and commanding. There is something in his way of pronouncing the name “Santiago” that hints he knows more than he is saying... or does he? Is Heddon in a romantic fog of his own wishful thinking, or is he preparing to depart for Santiago, on foot, forever? 

Musicians listed include Eric Marienthal on sax (Chick Corea), violinist Harry Scorzo (Celine Dion) and guitarist Irvin Magic Kramer (Ray Charles, Nora Jones). It certainly is a very good addition to anyone’s collection... Heddon could carry all the tunes soloing live with his own piano accompaniment, but the supporting artists on this recording really make the magic happen.

A journey of love and redemption along the roads of Spain, France and the deep sanctuary’s of the soul.

From the dream within a dream of "Always Do You Best" to the prayerful “Come Away,” you are taken to many parts of the world—from Los Angeles' where self-proclaimed 'enlightened' gurus will say anything for a check—to the quiet streets of Spain where there is hope that walking “The Road To Santiago” will bring peace and understanding. 

"The Road To Santiago" features some of L.A.’s finest musicians including saxman Eric Marienthal (Chick Corea), violinist Harry Scorzo (Celine Dion), and Irvin 'Magic' Kramer (Ray Charles, Nora Jones).

Classic Kutz for Contemporary Kats

Randy Heddon

In cart Not available Out of stock

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 Heddon

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."
