“Born to Be Blue can strike with deadly force …you would have to be tone deaf not to appreciate this stellar recording. From a straight ahead groove, to smoldering lyricism to the more funky side of the blues, there is something here for everyone.”
– Brent Black, Critical Jazz

“Heckman has much to be proud of with Born To Be Blue; it’s brimming with the soul and sound of a true saxophone sophisticate.”
– Dan Bilawsky, All About Jazz

“If you haven’t heard Heckman’s work, give Born To Be Blue a listen. It is straight-ahead swinging jazz played with panache. I think you’ll like what you hear. I know I did.”
– Jack Goodstein, Blogcritics.org
