“Jimmy is an affable jazz statesman — he has a new autobiography, and was named an NEA Jazz Master for 2003 — and Albert (nicknamed “Tootie”) has freelanced with anyone who’s anyone. Despite the 2005 death of their elder brother Percy, The Heath Brothers still convene on occasion. At the Village Vanguard this week, Jimmy and Tootie will add bass and piano to form a quartet. NPR Music and WBGO will be on hand for a live radio broadcast and online video webcast of their performance this Wednesday, July 6 at 9 p.m. ET. Check this page for live video, audio, chat and a recording afterwards.
