Jeff Healey & Jazz Wizzards – Beautiful Noise
Originally recorded for the Canadian TV show “A Beautiful Noise” (Toronto – January 2006), this program includes additional interview and musical footage. Healey, playing trumpet and guitar, leads his excellent band The Jazz Wizards forward into musical history. As always, he delivers jazz from the past with humor, respect for the tradition, and a contemporary attitude.
Healey gained worldwide fame as a stunningly original rock/blues guitarist and has toured and sat-in with many legendary performers, including Stevie Ray Vaughan, Buddy Guy, BB King, ZZ Top, Steve Lukather, Eric Clapton and many more. His passion, however, was the infectious and joyful music from the classic jazz era – the days when Jelly Roll Morton, King Oliver, Louis Armstrong and Bix Beiderbecke ruled the music world. For many years, Healey performed at his club, “Healey’s” on Bathurst Street in Toronto, where he played with a rock band on Thursday nights and with his jazz group on Saturday afternoons. The club moved to a bigger location at 56 Blue Jays Way and it was rechristened “Jeff Healey’s Roadhouse”. Healey also starred in the 1989 movie “Road House” alongside Patrick Swayze.
