All songs (taken from the Great American Songbook) were recorded in ONE TAKE by Andy Cleyndert at veteran jazz pianist Ronnie Smith's house on his Gotrian Steinweg piano using a vintage Neumann mic as used by Ian Curtis to record the 1st Joy Division album. It's a great story - how it all came together!
At Last was described by Walter Love on BBC Radio Ulster's Jazz Club as "a remarkable example of empathy and understanding...as near to perfect as you're likely to get."
All About Jazz.com said: "her voice, technically excellent and emotionally engaging, gives each lyric a very personal perspective, as if these are her stories, not just her interpretation of others' tales. It's the mark of a great jazz vocalist."
"WOW!!!!!! It's absolutely stunningly beautiful! I've just listened to the album and have been mesmerised from start to finish. Wonderful. All my favourite tunes too - ruddy love it!"

"Just listen to this amazing voice.................That was Heather Cairncross with I'm Glad There Is You with Dave Newton on Piano.
