Album Description

Wisdom Path was inspired by my experiences traveling and living around the world and from a transcendent encounter meeting and collaborating with Steve Shehan, percussionist master and long- time musical hero. My goal was to record exceptional musicians from around the world and bring their sounds together to create one worldly sound while maintaining respect for each culture. Wisdom Path is a tribute to the intrepid human spirit, to our yearning to connect with one another, and to our intrinsic ability to overcome the obstructions that life lays in front of us. My musical intentions reflect a celebration of life, adventure, compassion, and a cry for unity from deep within the collective human conscience. This album was recorded almost entirely during the COVID-19 pandemic and is a testament to the improvisational skills of my good friends, many of whom recorded their parts remotely and isolated. I hope these compositions inspire even just one impressionable musician in the same way that Steve Shehan’s original albums, specifically Arrows, inspired me as a child. This album is dedicated to my father, George Heid Sr., and to future generations of listeners, critical thinkers, and adventurers.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary step that will help musicians and venues now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the sticky footer ad). Thank you!
