Tim Price (Saxophone Journal) wrote: “This is a kick-ass saxophonist with finesse… Heckman’s sound on tenor is world-class.” Steve’s 3rd CD, “Born to Be Blue” (Jazzed Media) hit #19 on the Jazz Week charts and was on the charts for 12 weeks. His 4th CD, “Search for Peace” (also on Jazzed Media), featuring the same stellar cast of players as “Born to be Blue” (Howard Alden, Matt Clark, Marcus Shelby, and Akira Tana) is already “chart-bound” after only 2 weeks since its release.     Print Version
