“Born in New Zealand, this tough tenor saxophonist has been resident in the UK since 1989... Heath has a drive and sonic intensity that encourages further listening. He's partnered by veteran pianist John Donaldson, McCoy to Heath's Trane, a consumamate sideman who can swing with the best of them. But the Coltrane edginess is offset by a more audience-friendly side to Heath's playing on this not overly long set of originals, favouring the softer focus of R&B jazz sax. ... It's still undeniably well executed and listenable”. SELWYN HARRIS Jazzwise Aug 09
