5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic Arrangements! July 17, 2004
Format:Audio CD
What can be said about Jimmy Heath that hasn't been already well-documented? It is actually more about his sound than any written word. In this big band context, with excellent arrangements, that Heath shines, fronting a great ensemble that allows him to have enough solo work but also showcases the other players. Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Incredible... February 25, 2014
By Rosh
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I admit it...I never really listened to Jimmy Heath before and if you said the name, I'd plead ignorance about him and his place in our Jazz history. But Jimmy Heath's history is so steeped in the deepest parts of our jazz traditions, his mastery of the horn and especially of big-band composition...well I'm embarrassed to say I just didn't know.

This recording is classic. The compositions are stunning and surprising and just flow so beautifully without being sweet or sappy. This is jazz and I'm so glad I bought this CD now and added Mr. heath to my collection.

One of the last of a hugely influential part of jazz history - and a prince of a human being.

5.0 out of 5 stars JIMMY HEATH'S BIG BAND SWINGS April 7, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
A great big band offering by Jimmy Heath. The band swings and, as usual, Jimmy is a great leader and fine player. See my review of
"Swamp Seed" which is one of several cds, including "Little Man Big
Band" which I purchased after reading Jimmy's Autobiography. All
are great and, as indicated, they swing.
