Editors’ Notes

During the last decade of his life, Jeff Healey devoted much of his energy to playing vintage jazz, rather than the blues-rock that had won him fame in the ‘80s. Last Call adds a bittersweet coda to the legendary Canadian singer/guitarist’s work with the Jazz Wizards, capturing him in an intimate studio setting. Backed only by pianist/clarinetist Ross Wooldridge and violinist Drew Jurecka, Healey shows his connoisseur’s knowledge of old-time jazz by offering both standards (“Pennies from Heaven,” “Deep Purple”) and obscure gems (“Holding My Honey’s Hand”).

On “Some of These Days,” Jeff double-tracks his nimble acoustic guitar, then adds his own trumpet work.
