Biography of Tony Heiberg

Guitarist/composer Tony Heiberg is from a family of professional classical musicians based in Chicago Illinois. He attended Indiana University in the late 1970's where he studied under David Baker and was featured in several of the school's big bands.

Heiberg moved to New York in the early 80's where he made a living as a musician/writer before emigrating to London in 1986 after suffering a severe case of anglophilia - now cured, thankfully.

Tony Heiberg has played jazz and classical gigs around the world and has had the pleasure of playing and jamming with wonderful musicians and singers including Lucy and Irving Heiberg, Carlos Santana, Ralph Towner, John Abercrombie, Frank Griffith, Chakka Khan, Anne Pigalle, John Sex, Phoebe Legere, PM Dawn, Youth and the Tiger Lilies

Heiberg has the privilege of being a founding member of the Way Out West collective and has therefore been able to play and jam with such superlative world class musicians as Tim Whitehead, Tony Woods, Mike Outram, Eddie Harvey, Katriona Taylor, Nette Robinson, Chris Biscoe, Pete Hurt, Stan Saltzman, Malcomb Edmondson, Chris Nicholls, Graham Fox, Vasily Xenopolis, Will Hyland, Nick Haward and Kate Williams.

Some of the other some of the other greats of British jazz Heiberg has played with include Dave Frankel, Tom Laws, Meredith White, Dave Jones, Kevin Robinson, Robin Jones, Robert Rickenberg, Ian Scott-Taylor, Jason Yarde, Byron Wallen, Ken Rowe, Brian Edwards, Melvin Reeves and Wayne Batchelor.

The accomplished musicians featured on In Vino Veritas are:

Jake Fryer on alto saxophone and flute. Jake is the featured alto in the Stan Reynolds Big Band and has played in West End shows and with the Four Tops.

Keyboardist James Hayes began his career in Paris and now plays with numerous groups in London. Music journalist Matt Philips has written that James "specialises in tasty chord comping, slinky vamps and horn-like soloing".

Double Bassist Nick Haward studied jazz at the Guildhall School of Music and has performed with artists including Julian Joseph, Kenny Wheeler, Jean Toussaint, Dave Liebman and Tim Whitehead. Nick also plays contemporary classical music and has performed with Joanna MacGregor and recorded with various ensembles.

Bassist Terry Davis has gigged and recorded with Art Farmer and Rod Stewart

Bill Brown is the drummer in the Richmond Big Band and also plays in a number of blues bands.
