Any amount, big or small and by any means….debit, credit, cheque, money order, certified cheque, cash would help preserve the quality of CITR and improve our services to you, the listener. You will hear this number 604-UBC-UNIT (604-822-8648) or online at: citr.ca/donate frequently and our friendly call takers will help you make your pledge to The Jazz Show or any other show. Do NOT FORGET. Thank you so much.
One of the still living masters of the tenor saxophone is Jimmy Heath. His style and sound are immediately identifiable from the first note. Jimmy is the middle brother of the musical Heath Family which included brother Percy (bassist) and Albert (“Tootie”) (drummer). Jimmy has played with everyone and is an accomplished writer and arranger. This album is entitled “Picture of Heath” and is one of Jimmy’s finest. He displays his talent on both tenor and soprano saxophone and 5 of the 6 tunes on this date are by Jimmy. He appears here with pianist Barry Harris, bassist Sam Jones and drummer Billy Higgins…what could be a better rhythm section? Check out the swingin’ Mr. Heath tonight as our Jazz Feature artist.
