Jimmy Heath is still a vibrant part of today’s Jazz scene.
He is performing as a saxophonist, composing and arranging.
In addition he is Jazz educator.
Recently I watched a wonderful clip by Jazz Video Guy.
Here is Happy 90th Birthday Jimmy Heath
Finally, I will introduce my favorite his work.
Here is Jimmy Heath Quartet play “Body and Soul”.
Here is Roberta Gambarini with Jimmy Heath sings “Take The “A” Train” (2010 Taichung Jazz Festival).
Here is Jimmy Heath and Tootie Heath play “Fungii Mama”.
I post about modern female vocalists.
Probably I think this post is a rare in my blog.
