The Los Angeles-based, Philly born and bred guitarist, Skip Heller, has been making critically acclaimed records that have sent waves through the music underground for years. From 1998’s Couch, Los Angeles to last year’s Homegoing, he’s cemented an approach that knows no boundaries, equally inspired by Gene Ammons as The Blasters, NRBQ as Jimmy Webb, Curtis Mayfield as Bill Evans. Skip Heller is the quintessential 21st century jazz artist, drawing from disparate influences and shaping them into a fresh and vital statement for a modern audience. His new CD, FAKEBOOK, marks his HYENA Records’ debut. A 12-track collection of funky, down home organ jazz, it’s the kind of music gleamed off and soaked up through thousands of old Prestige and Blue Note sides. In Heller’s revered style, however, the concept is updated with his inimitable song selections and flourishes of Hollywood exotica and Lord Buckley subversiveness!
