Formed out of an idea for a soulful / smooth jazz sound Simon Golding and Paul Mundy got together and created HEIKATSU (which is Japanese for smooth). Having created dance and chilled out music they wanted to stretch their creative wings and move onto something more instrumental.

Noticing that the majority of the smoothsound came from the US they wanted to try something with a UK slant and TAKE ME AWAY was born with the help of Urban Dwellers singer Sarah Weller on the vocal numbers. With Jazzfm creating a smooth jazz market they thought it was time to try and get the album released.Comments: "As good, but creating a slightly different mood, is Plain sailing from Heikatsu. the vocalist here is up and coming Brit chanteuse Sarah Weller who's making quite a name for herself in the more discerning jazz clubs of the capital. Watch out for more from the sultry sounding lady later this year."

".there are also some tasty vocals - the refreshingly natural voice of Sarah Weller on Plain Sailing"
