well, i was on a bit of a heath bros kick today.  which, by the way, is quite the way to get a day’s work in.  like those old lucky ads said:  picks you up when you’re down, calms you down when you’re tense.  etc etc.

started with jimmy heath and the heath brothers at mr c’s, 1978; followed by jimmy Heath at the ramada inn, august 17, 1975 (vol 1.. where’s vol 2 please?); finishing up with this fantastic show from japan in 1975, with both nat adderley (applause) and cedar walton (more applause), not to mention tootie heath!  actually, that last show was on twice, as i’d earlier trimmed 2-second gaps but had kept — and inadvertently played — the original files as well.  halfway through the second go-around… well, here ya go.  enjoy.  btw, times below may be off by 2 seconds or so. 🙂

additional comments:
downloaded from dime march 2008 (seeded by bluenote2005). there were 2-second gaps at the end of every track, which i have removed using wavtrim 2.24.   consequently, i have redone this info file and created new .md5 and .ffp files. — pete (dublin)

    mega does have long passwords, doesn’t it?

  2. thanks, aw jimmy a few yrs ago

  3. Hi Pete, Thanks very much for this, 22 years ago, which I am sure will be as fresh as when it was played by these giants!!! At a future date, it would be wonderful to hear the others you mention as well. Cheers, MonkSphere

  4. Thank you, Pete! Thanks particularly for Cedar’s solos, how he composes his improvisations, the joy we feel on his notes. If you take Monk’s drama or algebra equation, sometimes, it takes an opposite difference between them. Anyway, it’s always Jazz with its beauty. Cedar left a wonderful memory to us, no doubt! I loved the sound of the recording too; I’m not a specialist but I loved to feel piano, bass, etc, etc.

  5. Cool, thanks.

  6. BIG THX!….
