This review is from: Togetherness: Live at the Blue Note (Audio CD)
Excellent live big band session to celebrate Jimmy's 85th Birthday. As you would expect from Jimmy Heath, this is a tasteful and swinging session with a top notch cast of players. With trumpeters Roy hargrove and Greg Gisbert, altoists Antonio hart and Mark Gross and the always dependable Steve Davis on trombone, you know you are in good hands. The live sound from the Blue Note club is spot on with every soloist audible above the ensemble playing and the overall sound mix is excellent.
Any faults ? Jimmy maybe takes a solo or two too many where you would have rather have heard a little more of Hart or Hargrove,but hey, its Jimmy's big day so I think we can indulge an elderly gent some solo time.
Saying that, he's still in good shape for a man in his mid eighties.
All in all a fine big band session that will give you much listening pleasure.
