I believe that part of what you're seeing is the large \baselinskip for the
large font sizes. That will exaggerate the vertical space to the baseline of
the first line of the heading. Still thinking about it. Did you try to put
in negative spacing for the vertical space above the heading? That should
shrink it further.

Good Luck,
