Bill HeidDealin Wid It ... CD
Savant, 2022. New Copy ... $15.99 16.99
A warmly well-rounded set of organ jazz from Bill Heid – maybe not the biggest player on the Hammond B3, but one who's been slowly building up an excellent legacy of records like this! There's an understated grace to the way that Bill handles the instrument – he's not out to blow the top off the Hammond, but has this command of color, tone, and timing that's really wonderful – served up in mostly trio format with Perry Hughes on guitar and Randy Gelispie on drums! Heid has a way of going deep right at the start of a tune, then continuing to keep things crisp and cool – a special sort of tone that's very much his own. He also sings a bit on two tracks, Kevin Bujo Jones joins the group on percussion on three cuts, and titles include the originals "Dealin Wid It", "Four To One", "It's A Living", "Minor Worm", "Naughty Little Puppy", and "Samba Cat".

Bill HeidWylie Avenue ... CD
Doodlin, 2009. Used ... $9.99 11.99
Sweet Hammond grooves from Bill Heid – a player with a great ear for both 60s and 70s-styled organ lines! Heid's got a way of hitting the keys that reminds us a bit of Johnny Hammond – quite fluid at points, and always ready to stretch out and soar on waves of sound that burn up from the bottom, then really take off as the tunes get going! The setting here is small – just guitar and drums, plus some occasional congas too – and Bill really does a great job of filling in all the spaces with his inventive lines. Titles include "Wylie Avenue", "Toe Tappin", "I Want You", "At The Hurricane", "The Slinky", and "Always Larry". CD
