Jeff Healey And The Jazz Wizards: Beautiful Noise presents a remarkable program dedicated to a jazz musician of undeniable greatness. Originally recorded for the Canadian TV show "A Beautiful Noise," this program includes additional interview and musical footage. Healey, playing trumpet and guitar, leads his excellent band The Jazz Wizards forward into musical history. As always, he delivers jazz from the past with humor, respect for the tradition, and a contemporary attitude. Healey gained worldwide fame as a stunningly original rock and blues guitarist after being signed to Arista Records in 1988, when the band released See the Light, featuring the hit single "Angel Eyes" and the song "Hideaway," which was nominated for a Grammy Award. His passion, however, was the infectious and joyful music from the classic jazz era - the days when Jelly Roll Morton, King Oliver, Louis Armstrong, and Bix Beiderbecke ruled the music world.
