Jazz at the Bechtler: The Music of Jimmy Heath 

In August, the Ziad Jazz Quartet honored the life of American jazz saxophonist, composer, arranger, and big band leader, Jimmy Heath. Heath, who recently passed on January 19, 2020 was nicknamed “Little Bird" after his work for Howard McGhee and Dizzy Gillespie in the late 1940s, during which his playing displayed influences from Charlie Parker.

Tune in below to hear Ziad and the Ziad Jazz Quartet highlight a selection of Jimmy Heath’s work, including "Gemini", "Gingerbread Boy," and the ballad, "The Voice of the Saxophone," as they performed live from the Playroom.
