All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
The 1990s Swing revival has been a mixed blessing for jazz fans; a lot of the practitioners talk the talk, walk the walk and wear the uniforms, but simply don't cut it as songwriters or performers because they rely too heavily on rock and omit any classic material from the genre. In spite of the appearance given by the cover of this CD, this is the Real McCoy. Duke Heitger is a the son of jazz musician Ray Heitger of the Cakewalking Jazz Band in Toledo, Ohio, and the early influences have paid great dividends. Heitger is a first rate trumpeter, leading a group that includes pianist David Boeddignhaus, clarinetist/alto saxophonist/tenor saxophonist Tom Fischer, both of whom ...

The 1990s Swing revival has been a mixed blessing for jazz fans; a lot of the practitioners talk the talk, walk the walk and wear the uniforms, but simply don't cut it as songwriters or performers because they rely too heavily on rock and omit any classic material from the genre. In spite of the appearance given by the cover of this CD, this is the Real McCoy. Duke Heitger is a the son of jazz musician Ray Heitger of the Cakewalking Jazz Band in Toledo, Ohio, and the early influences have paid great dividends. Heitger is a first rate trumpeter, leading a group that includes pianist David Boeddignhaus, clarinetist/alto saxophonist/tenor saxophonist Tom Fischer, both of whom have worked with Heitger in Banu Gibson's band. Drummer Chris Tyle is also the cornetist and leader of the Silver Leaf Jazz Band; there are also several notable guests: the brilliant trombonist and arranger Dan Barrett, the popular swing singer Rebecca Kilgore, and reedman Brian Ogilvie, a veteran of the Jim Cullum Jazz Band. There's a lot of long forgotten music within this CD, including Duke Ellington's "Swing Pan Alley,"which features Heitger's crisp muted horn and also the maestro's "Stevedore Stomp," highlighted by Barrett's tremendous chops as well as Fischer's clarinet and Ogilvie's solid tenor sax. Swing fans will greatly enjoy this release.

    Duke Heitger (a trumpet master)

    Duke Heitger from the solos he has performed with the Squirrel Nut Zipper Orchestra, I would would rate him one of the top trumpet players of all time. He reminds me of Louis Armstrong and Bix Beiderbecke but, Duke has his own style. If you like jazz and swing you will like this cd.
