discography & selected songs 


Wait, There's More!

Alison Young : Saxes
Stacie McGregor : Piano, Rhodes
Charlie Cooley : Drums
Henry Heillig : Bass

This 2015 release includes a re-recording of Ladybug Waltz. As the band is now voiced by sax rather than guitar, the original version does not represent us anymore. We are please to note that JAZZ.FM continues to play the song, in this remodeled version.

 

 

'Toons

Alison Young : Saxes
Stacie McGregor : Piano, Rhodes
Charlie Cooley : Drums
Henry Heillig : Bass
Jack Grunsky : Perc on 4

This 2013 EP represents the first studio effort by the present ensemble. It includes one of my favourite songs, Aaron Davis' Pentimento. Manteca performed this tune, but in a 9-piece band, the bassist was way down the list to play the melody. On this version, I made it happen!

 

 

Welcome Wagon

Henry Heillig : bass
William Carn : trombone
Craig Harley : keys
Howard Gaul : drums

This four-song EP is only available in digital format. It features the wonderful Toronto trombonist William Carn.

Inmotion

Henry Heillig : bass
Jake Langley : guitar
Craig Harley : keys
Howard Haul : drums

Just after inmotion was released in 2004, JAZZ.FM radio created a CD called New Standards, being their take on Canadian compositions deserving of the description.

They chose Ladybug Waltz as the opening track on that CD!

 

 

hy-lig-ma-noo-ver

Henry Heillig : bass
Kim Ratcliffe : guitars
Bill Brennan : keys, vibes & percussion
Howard Gaul : drums & percussion
Rob Gusevs : organ on el Niño

Along with his wonderful drumming, Howard Gaul was also responsible for the delightfully offbeat cover art, for this and the next two releases.
