Thanks! Share it with your friends!


Picture of Heath is an album by saxophonist Jimmy Heath featuring performances recorded in 1975 and originally released on the Xanadu label.

“As was true of most Xanadu dates, the accent is on bebop during this Jimmy Heath LP. Doubling on tenor and soprano, Heath is heard on five of his better originals, including “For Minor’s Only,” “CTA” and the title cut, plus “Body and Soul.” The great tenorman was clearly inspired by the stellar rhythm section (pianist Barry Harris, bassist Sam Jones and drummer Billy Higgins), resulting in one of his best blowing sessions.” – Scott Yanow/AllMusic.
