Since Stephen Riley made his recording debut as a leader on SteepleChase with piano-less trio 'Inside Out' (2005, SCCD31584), this trimmed down format has stayed with Riley on many recordings including this latest album, which pays tribute to the great Sonny Rollins who first recorded this format in 1957.

"The tenor saxophone trio is one of the great, if somewhat underutilized line-ups in jazz. Stephen Riley has made a study of the format and delivers a fine addition to a limited canon with Hart-beat...Hart-Beat is a really solid recording, with some noteworthy playing making it a worthy successor in a lineage of great tenor saxophone trio records." - Greg Simmons, All About Jazz (on 'Hart-Beat' SCCD31742)
