Recording information: Steeplechase Digital Studio (1995).
Jimmy Heath is in top form throughout this quartet session, which took place on the day his elder sister died after a lingering illness. Backed by his brother Albert "Tootie" Heath on drums, guitarist Tony Purrone, and bassist Kiyoshi Kitagawa, the tenor saxophonist revisits his fluid blues "The Quota" (which is very appropriately full of interesting quotes, displaying the leader's witty side) and debuts a new work, the enticing "Rio Dawn." He also delves into the works of other important jazz composers, including a lightly swinging treatment of Duke Pearson's "Is That So?," a potent arrangement of Blue Mitchell's lively calypso "Fungii Mama," and an extended workout of Tadd Dameron's "Hot House" that features each of the musicians in the spotlight to good effect. But it is Jimmy Heath's lush rendition of Duke Ellington's ballad "All Too Soon" that leaves the most lasting impression on this outstanding date. ~ Ken Dryden
