WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

The Heath Brothers have been contributing mightily to the language of jazz since the 1940s. Jimmy Heath, contemplating his family's long-standing presence in jazz history, remarked, "we're lucky enough that [we] are still here. Among us, we've got more than 150 years of experience and more than 900 recordings. We've all played with the jazz legends Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, J.J. Johnson, Miles and the Modern Jazz Quartet, that seems to make us the elders of the surviving families of Jazz." Formed in 1975 in Philadelphia, The Heath Brothers group originally consisted of brothers Jimmy (tenor tax), Percy (bass), and Albert "Tootie" Heath, along with pianist Stanley Cowell, and has gone through various lineup changes. Today, brothers Jimmy and Tootie carry on the legend and family tradition, still swinging hard.
