Heillig Manoeuvre

Heillig Manoeuvre is a vehicle for sharing music that is both challenging and satisfying, without intimidating its audience … contemporary jazz from a songbook, not a doctoral thesis. ‘As a composer, I set the starting points for our musical adventures. Then they come to life in the hands of my favourite companions – Alison Young (Saxophonist), Stacie McGregor (Pianist) and Charlie Cooley (Drummer). As a bassist, I am influenced greatly by the conversations we create together, and I play my best when in their company.’ – Henry Heillig
