SOME OTHER TIME / SLOW CAFÉ
SOME OTHER TIME/SLOW CAFÉ is Steve Heckman’s 6th album to date, and the 5th album on which Steve collaborates with piano virtuoso Matt Clark. These tracks, taken from 2 recording sessions, reflect perhaps the most intimate and reflective sides of Steve and Matt’s playing to date.
The additional space created by the absence of bass and drums sets the stage for creative explorations of mood and textural nuance which might not have been achieved in a standard quartet/quintet setting.
Available on CD Baby and Amazon on October 10, 2017.
Steve has released five previous CDs as a leader. "Steve Heckman again plays that full rich tenor sax in his latest outing, a CD boasting notes and tones so fat and golden you can practically pick them out of the air like ripe apples." Mark S. Tucker, Folk & Acoustic ~ Music Exchange
