Saxophonist Dick Heckstall-Smith had a major role in the British blues boom of the 1960s, playing in the bands of Alexis Korner, Graham Bond, and John Mayall. In all of his work, and particularly in the late-'60s band Colosseum, he ventured into the little-explored territory where blues, jazz, and rock meet. In addition to doing session work, he's released some solo recordings. 1995's Celtic Steppes, funded by the Arts Council of England, was an ambitious world fusion outing. ~ Richie Unterberger, AMG
