Heath Brothers


The Heath Brothers was a jazz group formed in 1975 by brothers Jimmy (tenor saxophone), Percy (bass), and Albert "Tootie" Heath (drums) and pianist Stanley Cowell. Tony Purrone (guitar) and Jimmy's son Mtume (percussion) joined the group later. Tootie left in 1978 and was replaced by Akira Tana for a short period of time before Tootie returned in 1982. They also added other sidemen for some of their recording dates. The group still exists with just two of the brothers, Jimmy and Tootie, and additional sidemen as needed. Read more on Last.fm

The DVD, Brotherly Jazz: The Heath Brothers, recorded in 2004, shortly before Percy Heath's death, was one of the last times the brothers played together and chronicles the Heath Brothers personal lives as well as socio-political issues many jazz musicians dealt with in the later 20th century, including jail, drugs, discrimination and segregation. They play predominantly hard bop. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
