Schon lange zählt Paul Heller zur Spitze der europäischen Tenorsaxophonisten. Als ein Hauptsolist der Grammy-ausgezeichneten WDR Big Band ist er an etlichen Produktionen internationaler Künstler, wie Joe Zawinul, Abdullah Ibrahim, Fay Claassen, Arturo Sandoval, Maceo Parker, McCoy Tyner, John Scofield u.a. beteiligt.

Hellers eigene Projekte, wie "Celebration", produziert zum achzigsten Geburtstag seines Quintettpartners und Mentors Ack van Rooyen, sowie"Special Edition Vol. 1 & 2" erlangen in der Fachwelt international große Aufmerksamkeit und Anerkennung.

Paul Heller ist auf über fünfzig CDs zu hören - unter anderen mit Bob Brookmeyer, Wolfgang Haffner, Kenny Wheeler, M ichael Abene, Jerry van Rooyen, mit seiner Partnerin in Musik und Leben, der niederländischen Jazzsängerin, "Chet Baker Award"- und "Edison Award"-Gewinnerin Fay Claassen und vielen anderen mehr.

Paul plays with maturity and total control of his instrument. Like the masters before him, Paul is continuing a legacy on the saxophone that very few on this planet can achieve.

Bill Evans

Masterful playing by Paul! He has his own voice full of personnel nuances that make him immediately recognizable. His vibratos and other endings of notes are warmly detailed. His soprano playing is an inspiration with all the personnel aspects of his tenor playing Great compositions and a must buy CD
