Lowland Lullaby - Jimmy Heath Sextet - The Thumper + The Quota (CD)

Adderley is not normally as gifted a player as Hubbard but he has a readily identifiable sound and a more straight ahead rhythmic concept which helps the Lowland Lullaby - Jimmy Heath Sextet - The Thumper + The Quota (CD) swing. Hubbard is an explosive thrilling trumpet normally but here is not quite on top form and slightly disrupts the flow. Curtis Fuller plays well. He has a big tone and his solos, although not spectacular, have plenty of content.

On the contrary the french horn is an ornery instrument which even Julius Watkins, its prime exponent, can struggle with. However it does add a pleasing difference to the ensemble sound. Both rhythm sections do all required of them, although Wynton Kelly, with his inbuilt swing probably shades it over Cedar. The leader, a respected member of the jazz fraternity since the mid forties, is consistently the best soloist.

Lowland Lullaby - Jimmy Heath Sextet - The Thumper + The Quota (CD) swings all the time, plays attractive lines and on the two ballads where the other horns drop out, delivers moving solos. He was never one of the biggest names but always much respected and always delivered consistently good solos. Well worth buying, as are virtually any of his discs. Of the three Riverside records by Jimmy Heath that I have acquired, "Really big" probably takes the biscuit with Lowland Lullaby - Jimmy Heath Sextet - The Thumper + The Quota (CD) crackingsmallish big band recording exactly the type of jazz that would appeal both to people who want something more modern as well as offering unrelenting swing.

The albums "The Thumper" and "The quota" aren't without their merits too. I would Lowland Lullaby - Jimmy Heath Sextet - The Thumper + The Quota (CD) that perhaps Curtis Fuller and Nat Adderley might have performed better on other discs on the former and that Cedar Walton is a bit reserved on the latter with Julius Watkins being ok-ish on an instrument I'm not too fond of.

That said, Lowland Lullaby - Jimmy Heath Sextet - The Thumper + The Quota (CD) Hubbard is on "The Quota" with the ever-excellent Wynton Kelly holding down the piano chair on the former, so there is so fine soloing on offer other than JH.

The ballads are sensational. I'm going to be controversial here and suggest that, setting aside Coltrane and Sonny, Jimmy Heath's playing is as good as anything else recorded at the time. His tone is amazingly consistent and the solos are unleashed with confidence. I'm not too fussed Lowland Lullaby - Jimmy Heath Sextet - The Thumper + The Quota (CD) some of Coltrane's pre-"Giant Steps" work but I strongly believe that JH must have been a huge influence as well as a good friend.

Heath sounds like a fully realised version of early 'Trane. The playing is exceptional and maybe a wake up call for anyone thinking that Blue Note had the monopoly on tenor titans. The other benefit is Heath's writing. I don't think his compositions share the beauty of Tadd Dameron or maybe have the same savvy, hipness of some of Blue Note's more capable composers of that era like Sonny Clark.

That said, tunes like "For minors only" should be considered as jazz standards. Where JH shines is the ability to make a three piece front line sound much larger. The individual parts do more than play harmonies and reading the autobiography and picking up the observations of his fellow musicians made me pay more attention to the quality of what he was composing and arranging.

Although JH is nowadays celebrated for his writing for large ensembles, these two records are clear evidence that he is one of the best arrangers for small aggregations too.

It is no surprise that Blue Note were keen to sign him and maybe producing records Lowland Lullaby - Jimmy Heath Sextet - The Thumper + The Quota (CD) a music fashionable label would have bought him the deserved kudos that came with working with Alfred Lions.

Heath's compositions are probably more ambitious than what Blue Note was issuing in the early 60's and I am strongly of the opinion JH is very under-appreciated by Lowland Lullaby - Jimmy Heath Sextet - The Thumper + The Quota (CD) average jazz fan.

I would also add that "Tootie" Heath's drumming is something of a revelation too and far more "progressive" and aggressive that his reputation would seem to merit. Sidemen and other production credits producer, etc. Other comments here.
