One third of the legendary Heath Brothers, Jimmy Heath started playing saxophone in his home town of Philadelphia back in the 1940's. A protege of be-bop icon Charlie Parker ("The Bird"), Heath picked up the nickname of "Little Bird" - and became a leader of the hard bop Jazz movement in the 1950's. A sought-after sideman, he has appeared on nearly 50 albums between 1948 and 2006. As a leader, he has released 20 records since 1959, often to rave reviews.

This recording was originally released in 1972 under the title "The Gap Filler." It was re-released in 1979 as "Jimmy", an album that featured pianist Kenny Barron, electric bass player Bob Cranshaw, and Jimmy's younger brother Albert "Tootie" Heath on drums. The original title of "Gap Sealer" was meant to signal Heath's work to bridge musical eras. The selections include some examples of aggressive envelope-pushing playing, some that pay tribute to his African heritage and some that incorporate the growing fusion of funk and jazz.

I played the album from beginning to end, and didn't hear any significant noise anywhere. It really is in Near Mint shape. The cover is excellent -- it is solid and shows just a bit of shelf wear. It's a promo copy (white label, and the remains of a library sticker on the front). The inner sleeve is dandy.

Sometimes over-shadowed by his older brother Percy, Jimmy clearly stands out on his own, in part because of releases like this one. Enjoy it on some very clean vinyl.
