"……Rick Henly, whose trumpet has as unusually sweet and singing tone."   John Wilson, NY Times, 11/84

"Love Like Fire is a wonderful showcase for trumpeter Rick Henly's talents, which are many. Henly's pure sound, flawless technique, exceptional range and meticulous phrasing bring to mind such classical masters as Rafael Mendez or, closer to the Jazz orbit, Doc Severinsen or perhaps Maynard Ferguson. Simply beautiful music, beautifully played by Henly and a large orchestra with strings and a vocal group." Jack Bowers,

"A gorgeous album that features both big band and orchestra, this production has very high production values and really does, in my opinion deserve them. Rick Henly is a trumpet player who has a superb big sound, an incredible range and enviable intonation even at the extremes of the instrument. On this CD he shows to very good effect his ability as a jazz player and a lyrical soloist. The program divides between powerhouse big band and a superb orchestra playing mostly standards." John Killoch, Mainly Big Bands

"Rick Henly emerges as a soloist in his own right, following in the tradition of Doc Severinsen. Love Like Fire is an impressive addition to the solo trumpet catalogue." Robert J. Robbins, BIG BANDS INTERNATIONAL
