Jimmy Heath, an NEA Jazz Master, is widely recognized as one of the greats in jazz. A saxophonist, composer, arranger, and educator, Heath has known and played with many jazz giants throughout his career: Charlie Parker, John Coltrane, Miles Davis, and Dizzy Gillespie, to name a few. In his autobiography, written with Joseph McLaren, Heath creates an extraordinary "dialogue" with musicians and family members, including his equally legendary brothers, Percy and Albert (Tootie). Heath directed the Jazz Studies master's degree program in performance at Queens College (CUNY).
