The Heath Brothers and The Bobby Hutcherson Tribute Band - Healdsburg Jazz Festival

Talent doesn't always run equally among siblings, but when it does the results can often be astounding. Take the case of the Brothers Heath: saxophonist, flautist and composer Jimmy Heath, drummer Albert "Tootie" Heath, and the late bassist Percy Heath. Extraordinarily gifted instrumentalists who had each proven themselves as jazz mainstays of the 1950s and 60s. Withstanding the loss of Percy's passing, Jimmy and Albert decided to soldier on, expanding the mighty legacy the band had established among the jazz cognoscenti. Recruiting two exceptionally skillful younger players, both thoroughly conversant with the Heath aesthetic - the pianist Jeb Patton and the bassist Gary Wong - Jimmy and Albert rebooted The Heath Brothers. The special individuality of the band was still in place, now incorporating the talents of two incomparable veterans still at the top of their games, with the passion of the newer members.
Bobby Hutcherson's passing away on August 15, 2016 robbed the world of a genius who helped move the vibraphone into the forefront of modern jazz. A brilliant performer, recording artist and composer, Hutcherson electrified the jazz scene with his inventive and soulful playing. Paying tribute to this musical titan will be a quartet comprised of three former Hutcherson collaborators - Ray Drummond on bass, Victor Lewis on drums, and musical director Renee Rosnes on piano - joined by Steve Nelson, one of the most renowned vibraphonists on today's scene. No more appropriate or talented ensemble could be assembled to applaud this beacon of post-bop jazz, a man who called the West Coast home for much of his life.
