Hard bop­ping with Heath

Pasatiempo - - RANDOM ACTS -

Jazz-drum­ming star Al­bert “Tootie” Heath plays the Mu­seum Hill Café (710 Camino Lejo) on Fri­day, Feb. 13. Now a Santa Fe res­i­dent, he’s the youngest of the fa­mous Heath Broth­ers — with tenor mas­ter Jimmy Heath, who daz­zled a New Mex­ico Jazz Fes­ti­val au­di­ence in 2009, and the late, great bassist Percy Heath. Tootie made mu­sic with Red Gar­land, Nina Si­mone, J.J. John­son, John Coltrane, Cannonball Ad­der­ley, and Billy Tay­lor be­fore his twenty-fifth birth­day. Since then he has honed his chops work­ing with John Lewis, Dex­ter Gor­don, McCoy Tyner, and scores of other leg­ends of the hard-bop genre. The Santa Fe Mu­sic Col­lec­tive con­cert with pi­anist Bert Dal­ton and bassist Andy Zadrozny starts at 7 p.m. Tick­ets are $25; for reser­va­tions and in­for­ma­tion, call 505-983-6820. — Paul Wei­de­man
