“My task was to study the classic Frank Sinatra recordings featuring Nelson Riddle's exquisite arrangements to capture all the nuances of Nelson Riddle's masterpieces. It was a genuine privilege to be able to re-experience these great song renditions exactly as they were first recorded -- on a large soundstage, with the singer, rhythm section, brass, reeds and strings all performing and "going to tape" live together. Instead of piecing the music together from a series of "overdubs," as is the norm these days, we all had the pleasure of recording these songs as an organic whole. I believe you can hear - and feel - that special chemistry on this new vinyl.”
– John Mills
“Playing the incredible arrangements of Nelson Riddle in that big beautiful Nashville studio
with all the great musicians was a rare opportunity to experience recording at its best.”
– Michael Mordecai
"Andrew really rose to challenge of making these classic songs his own. His performances combined with the opportunity to record the Nelson Riddle Orchestra made for a truly great experience and an album that I'm proud to have been involved with.”
– Ray Barnette
Andrew Heller shines on "All The Way"
"On 'My Way', Heller craftfully interprets without impersonation. His vocals are strong yet easy on the ear. Unlike most Sinatra salutes, Heller focuses on personalizing the lyric - making each tune his own - all the while remaining respectful to the Chairman of the Board. He delivers His Way indeed."
"Andrew Heller has the vocal quality and range to make any singer jealous!"
- Peter Bay, Musical Director, Austin Symphony
"After Andrew Heller sold out our house and received a standing ovation, many emails and letters arrived saying we must bring him back season after season. Not only does Andrew have a magnificent, beautifully trained voice; his interpretation of songs is as good as it gets. He skillfully connects with audiences and donors alike and I highly recommend him for Gala events as well."
- Pebbles Wadsworth, Ex-Officio Director of the Performing Arts Center, UT Austin
"Andrew Heller will be a household name. The voice deserves it."
-Ervin Drake, composer
"At last, a CD that does Frank Sinatra justice. Andrew is in the pocket with all these great Sinatra classics starting with the very first, Night and Day through My Way...”
- JIM STONE - The "all-new" BIG BAND SWING ON 89.7 FM, WLNZ, Lansing, MI
"The orchestration from Chris Riddle and John Mills plus Ray Barnette's production makes Andrew Heller's SINATRA MY WAY into his best release ever. "
- BOB PERRY - THE PENTHOUSE
"Andrew Heller and Chris Riddle should be very proud of themselves for keeping the music alive with their new release on Sinatra hits from the Great American Songbook. The arrangements and the songs bring back great memories of growing up as a Capitol Records brat. They are timeless!"
-DEBBI WHITING (Daughter of singer Margaret Whiting)
"Andrew beautifully delivers these great Sinatra classics "his way". The result, a wonderful centennial tribute to Sinatra based on his original arrangements, many from my father Nelson Riddle."
"Andrew Heller’s rich tenor voice takes Frank Sinatra’s songs to a new depth. His current CD “Sinatra My Way” is a lively and entertaining session with the Nelson Riddle orchestra, conducted by Nelson’s son Chris. Andrew Heller takes the spotlight with ease and holds the audience to the last note. This is a singer."
-John Bohannon, The Jazz Cafe, WRHU, New York.
