Sax Great Jimmy Heath 'Walked With Giants,' And He's Still Here

Lead in text: 
In the room he uses as a practice space and office in his apartment in Corona, Queens, Jimmy Heath recalls a hit record from long ago. "It's a song Bill Farrell, a popular singer, had years ago," he says, and then sings: "You've changed, you're not the angel I once knew / No need to tell me that we're through / It's all over now, you've changed." Then the 5'3" musician with the big sound picks up his tenor saxophone and blows.

Jazz Notes

CD Release event Sunday night at Dazzle

         Not too long ago, the Canadian pianist/composer Renee Rosnes was in Denver, performing at Dazzle. This week, it’s Renee’s husband, pianist Bill Charlap, who visits Denver for a two-night stand at Dazzle, 930 Lincoln, on Thursday and Friday. Of course, if the two pianists had been in town together, they could have revisited their duo Double Portrait CD on Blue Note. But, instead, Charlap is in town with his trio that has David Wong on bass and Kenny Washington on drums.

Breakfast Jazz Gets Its Irish On

Yes, he's Irish!

With a name like James Joyce, you can understand why JJ has an affinity for the holiday. Tune in Saturday morning from 6 till 8am for Breakfast Jazz with JJ - the St. Patrick's Day edition. They'll be Irish music, likely some Irish food - bangers and mash, perhaps - and maybe some green beverages.
