Product Description:

Jimmy Heath Sextet: Jimmy Heath (tenor saxophone); Nat Adderley (cornet); Curtis Fuller (trombone); Wynton Kelly (piano); Paul Chambers (bass); Albert "Tootie" Heath (drums).
Recorded at Reeves Sound Studios, New York, New York in September 1959. Originally released on Riverside (1160). Includes liner notes by Orrin Keepnews.
Digitally remastered by Phil De Lancie (1994, Fantasy Studios, Berkeley, California).
Jimmy Heath at age 33 made his recording debut as a leader on this Riverside session which has been reissued on CD in the OJC series. The hard bop tenor-saxophonist is in superior form, contributing five originals (of which "For Minors Only" is best known), jamming with an all-star sextet (including cornetist Nat Adderley, trombonist Curtis Fuller, pianist Wynton Kelly, bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Albert "Tootie" Heath) and taking two standards as ballad features. The excellent session of late '50s straightahead jazz is uplifted above the normal level by Heath's writing. ~ Scott Yanow
