Angel City Jazz Festival & Los Angeles Jazz Society Commission

Angel City Poster

In fulfillment of a commission from the Los Angeles Jazz Society, I’ve composed a suite for sextet to honor and feature jazz drummer Albert “Tootie” Heath; one of the last living drummers to have played with John Coltrane, Thelonious Monk, Lester Young, Don Cherry, and many others. With this piece I hope present a less-often heard side of Tootie’s playing to honor and continue the legacy of his work.

The premiere performance will be held at the John Ford Amphitheater on October 6th as part of the Angel City Jazz Festival
