Description by

In 1975, bassist Percy Heath left his position with the Modern Jazz Quartet to form The Heath Brothers with Jimmy and Tootie Heath. These two original hard bop albums from the vaults of Columbia also feature Stanley Cowell on piano and Tony Purrone on guitar, as well as famed R&B singer, writer, and producer Mtume (Jimmy Heath's son) as background vocalist. Among the jazz-funk highlights are "Feelin' Dealin'," "Dreamin," and "Use It (Don't Abuse It)."
