Heath Brothers: Endurance (CD: Jazz Legacy)
For over 60 years, the legendary Heath Brothers have been synonymous with great jazz. ‘Endurance’ is their first CD since the passing of their beloved brother, legendary bassist Percy Heath. Between them, tenor saxophonist, composer, and arranger Jimmy Heath and drummer Albert “Tootie” Heath have more than a century in the jazz limelight to their credit. They have played and recorded with a near-endless list of jazz immortals and icons including Charlie Parker, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, Ella Fitzgerald, Nina Simone, Herbie Hancock, Wynton Marsalis, and many more. This is masterful music from the brothers’ current working quartet that includes two rising young jazz stars: pianist Jeb Patton and bassist David Wong. (Proper Music)
