Jimmy Heath Band - Grant’s Tomb - August 20, 2014
Well I’ve finally gotten to the point where I’m sketching sidemen instead of the leader (I have sketched Heath four times already over the years), and I don’t know the best way to create the heading. So I’m going with Jimmy Heath for this, it was his gig, even though I didn’t capture him this nite. There was one passage with Heath soloing on a slow number that was so gorgeous I had actual tears and had to pause my work. What a sap! Purrone has not been on my radar screen, but then I realized that he was in the Heath Brothers band that me and Toots saw way back in 1980!
