Jeff Healey, who died of cancer in 2008 at the age of 41, enjoyed a strong career. In addition to his Arista releases, he appeased his love of Jazz with side projects for Stony Plain Records. During this side journey, he recorded traditional Jazz tunes (and other things) for his envisioned projects that included Among Friends (2002), Adventures In Jazzland (2004), It’s Tight Like That (2006), Mess Of Blues (2008), Songs From The Road (2009), and Last Call (2010). These were with The Jazz Wizards.
On July 17, Stony Plain Records will release a collection of his Jazz work with the label on a single CD called The Best Of The Stony Plain Years. This set will gather together twelve songs including a promo only release tune, “Sweet Georgia Brown”, recorded with Chris Barber.
