Jimmy Heath died in January however he left behind his work on Love Letter just released by Verve. Featuring guest spots by Gregory Porter who does O.C. Smith proud on Gordon Parks' 'Don't Misunderstand,' Cécile McLorin Salvant and Wynton Marsalis the all-ballads album includes songs written by Billie Holiday, Mal Waldron, Dizzy Gillespie, Kenny Dorham, and Gordon Parks. It's lush, for the ages classic jazz that you don't get to hear much of any more and I guess a whole new generation of listeners wil be rediscovering Heath's work all over again through the impetus of this classy release. Heath was 93 when he passed and over the decades performed on more than 100 albums and wrote more than a hundred compositions, many of which have become jazz standards and have been recorded by artists that include Cannonball Adderley, Chet Baker, Miles Davis, James Moody, Milt Jackson and Ahmad Jamal.
