The Heath Brothers

Jimmy, Percy, and Tootie Heath teamed up in 1975 to form the Heath Brothers. Up until then, bassist Percy had been busy with the Modern Jazz Quartet, but with the group in "retirement" (temporarily as it turned out), all three brothers were free to join forces. Originally a quartet with pianist Stanley Cowell, but expanding after the addition of guitarist Tony Purrone and Jimmy's son Mtume on percussion, the band recorded for Strata East (1975), four albums for Columbia, and two for Island. Tootie Heath left the group early on and was replaced by Akira Tana, although he came back for the final 1983 record. Although the Heath Brothers' music was essentially hard bop, there were occasional departures into jazzy R&B on isolated selections. All of their albums are worth seeking out. ~ Scott Yanow, Rovi

The Heath Brothers might be described as hard bop and rhythm and blues but I woud say that these folks are the soul of lyricism and soulful good taste. Ruby My Dear is lovely. The CD songs for Africa is a masterpiece.
Enjoy their music..Where is the song/album with For the Public
OK, subway guy. I was in my corporate 'blue-suit and briefcase' get-up. We were the only people on the lower west side uptown plat. You were enjoying a smoke and I strolled over. You thought I was going to bust you. A few weeks later, YOU took ME to hear a magnificent, strutting,an g r y NINA SIMONE at lincoln center. And life went on and our paths never crossed again. I'm a 66 year old potter in Middletown, CT. I know you are part of the Heath clan (son, grandson, nephew) Someone - get my
