Percussion legend Bill Summers came to San Francisco from Detroit. By the early 70s he had established himself as part of the competitive music scene and when Herbie Hancock was forming a group to play his new jazz fusion sound, he chose Bill as his percussionist. "Feel The Heat" was Bill's first album for the jazz label Prestige. It is a brilliant amalgam of jazz, soul and Latin, produced by Skip Scarborough and featuring the vocals of Diane Reeves. It features four slices of high quality soul and four percussive work outs, including the jazz dance classic 'Brazilian Skies'.
