The Heath Brothers Quartet performs at concerts, festivals, clubs and educational venues world-wide. As The New York Times' chief jazz critic has written, "their sets offer a glimpse of great experience filtered through great gentleness; they're a real shot of joy." The quartet was founded in 1976 by Jimmy, Percy and Albert "Tootie" Heath -- one of the most distinguished families in jazz. The Heath Brothers have made 7 recordings, and their latest is due out soon.
Percy Heath was the bassist for the Modern Jazz Quartet for more than 40 years and a NEA Jazz Master. Since his death in 2005, Jimmy and Tootie have introduced new songs, while preserving the band's original trademark of relaxed, funky, swinging bop.
