Bill Heid came of age in the crucible that was Pittsburgh in its jazz heyday. Toured & recorded as a pianist with Jimmy Witherspoon, Koko Taylor, Alberta Adams, Fenton Robinson, & many others. He also played jazz piano on two major Impulse!/MCA recordings for Chicago guitarist Henry Johnson, who called Bill's piano playing "brilliant", & adds that Bill "...brings fire, excitement and a feeling of the blues to any recording that he appears on." Bill became better known as an organist, recording as a leader on several outstanding jazz organ dates in the mid to late nineties for the Muse/Westside and Savant labels. Bill's organ sound is at once gritty and sophisticated and is flavored with Bill's idiosyncratic style and unique vernacular. For "Air Mobile", his first piano recording as a leader - and hopefully the first of many - Bill came home and sought out bassist Dwayne Dolphin, drummer Roger Humphries, and percussionist George Jones, three top-caliber Pittsburgh musicians.
