“All Blues” is a 1959 jazz track from Miles Davis' “Kind of Blue.” On tenor sax is Jimmy Heath himself, who played with Davis during the composer's lifetime. Davis claimed Heath was his favorite tenor saxophonist.
Heath was, Davis added, “a very hip dude to be with, funny and clean and very intelligent. Jimmy is one of the thoroughbreds.”
But Heath's storied collaborations weren't limited to playing with Davis. Over five decades he has performed with other greats, such as Dizzy Gillespie, Wynton Marsalis, John Coltrane and Howard McGhee.
Accompanying Heath is Julian Priester, Michele Rosewoman, Don Moye and Mark Helias.
