Jimmy Heath Big Band – August 23, 2013

Jimmy Heath Big Band  – Marcus Garvey Park  -  August 23, 2013

As part of the Charlie Parker Jazz Festival, Heath led his big band in a premiere of his extended composition, “Bird is the Word”.  And then continued with his brand of modern trad post-bop.   Heath gets top shelf players for his ensemble, some still young and in training, and lets ‘em wail!   A parade of soloists doing right by the music kept me frantic trying to keep up sketching, no time for color.  Lordy!
