Album Notes
American Jazz Records presents Craig Heesch a dreamy melt on your ear singer returns with this new album "From Out of The Wings" He was on the 2005 Grammy nominating ballot for, Best Traditional Pop Vocal album, Best New Artist, Album of the Year, and Producer of the year. He is co-host on the national television show "The Clubhouse"

In 1961 a young vocalist named Craig Heesch was singing and recording as Craig Adams for Overland Records in Hollywood, California. Craig had grown up with the great American classics sung by Frank Sinatra, Mel Torme, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole and other great singers.

Craig and former piano player for Frank Sinatra and Ella Fitzgerald, Jimmy Sheldon, wrote and recorded the song "The Girl With the Golden Hair" which was Craig's first release and later featured in a Hollywood film starring Jane Mansfield. Subsequently, Craig toured the radio stations with his record.

Craig later teamed up with Dick Dale and the Del Tones when they were commissioned to record a release for the U.S.O. called,"Dream Girl Waltz, that was distributed internationally. It was featured on the Chet Huntley David Brinkley News Hour.

He really wanted to sing the standards but timing was not in his favor. Just when things were beginning to happen, the US Patent Dept. granted Craig his first patent for an important technical device, he suddenly stepped back into the wings, postponing his music career to become very successful in business.

Some years later after completing his technical career, Craig had the opportunity to meet with that great vocalist, Mel Torme. It was he who gave Craig the encouragement to return to the music he loved. Mr. Torme lamented that when he and Sinatra left the music scene there would be no more crooners waiting in the wings and that if Craig were ever to pursue his music now would be the time for him to emerge.

Craig had been singing the standards for many years and now that this music has come back in demand, so has Craig, as he steps out with his lush, romantic new album, "From Out of the Wings", in memory of Mel Torme.

Jim Pike, founder, arranger, and lead singer of the legendary vocal group, "The Lettermen" who received nine gold albums and five Grammy Award nominations is the co-producer of Craig's album.

Jim says of Craig, "Take the sensitivity and phrasing of a lyric, the tone quality and intonation of all the great crooners of the past, and that's Craig.

Although there may be hundreds of singers out there, few have the ability to touch our musical souls as does Craig. He is truly the voice and crooner for this new century. His dreamy romantic style will touch your heart as he takes you to the nostalgia of the classics. Seldom does a voice like this come along".

Nice, classic, crooner jazz.
I love Frank Sinatra and have several of his albums. When I saw that this album had some of the great songs, I had to have it and have been very pleased. I can't wait for Craig to visit Portland, OR.

Not since David Adams, Frank Sinatra, or Buddy Greco have I been so impressed with a vocalist. This natural voice interprets some of the greatest songs ever put on paper.
If you only purchase one record this year, this one is money well spent. Johnny Adams the KNRY Jazz Authority
