Notes & Reviews:

This Mark Records release, 'Point of Departure' features original compositions and arranged works for trumpet and piano chamber duo, played by trumpeter Travis Heath and pianist Steve Zivin. Sonatas by Jean Hubeau and Michael Mikulka bookend arranged works by Vaughan Williams and Franz Herbst. Mr. Heath won the 1995 Florida Trumpet Festival Solo Competition. He's performed with the Brevard Symphony, the Orlando Philharmonic, and commercially for Universal Studios and the Walt Disney World Co. In 2003, Travis played lead trumpet for Ray Charles on two different PBS broadcasts.

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
This trumpet recital has an arresting opener: Laura Caviani's 5-minute Point of Departure for eight trumpets, all parts played by Travis Heath. It is a very enjoyable piece and an impressive feat - remarkable that a person can interact so precisely with his many-recorded selves. The rest of the program is more conventional. Michael Mikulka's Trumpet Sonata (2007) is new to me. It is an excellent work with tuneful melodies, very tonal harmonies that sometimes take surprising turns, and challenging passages for the soloist. I hope this is not the last time I hear it. Oskar Bohme's terrific, melodramatic Concerto in F minor, especially ones with piano accompaniment (the one by Wolfgang Bauer is fabulous, March/April 2010). These players give it heroism and adventure in the outer movements, lots of heart in the middle one. I greatly enjoyed listening to these players and this music.
