    Heillig Manoeuvre is a Toronto-based quartet whose repertoire consists of original instrumental jazz. Bassist/bandleader Henry Heillig describes what they do as thoughtful fun. “I write songs, with melody and elements of my own character. They become jazz in performance with my musical partners.”, says Heillig.
    Heillig is best know for his twenty+ years as musical director of Manteca, the nine- piece afro latin world beat calypso jazz ensemble. “Manteca was a great ride, much like an ocean liner. Heillig Manoeuvre, by comparison, is a sailboat that can change direction on a gust of spontaneous ideas. Our performances have form, but also room for spontaneity, and we push each other to be our very best. Audience reaction to our approach has been uniformly rewarding!” The current version of Heillig Manoeuvre, together since 2011, has recently released
    a third CD, Thoughtful Fun. The band toured Western Canada in November, And has several performances upcoming in Ontario.
