Jimmy Heath is one of jazz's most overlooked legends, with a career playing saxophone alongside icons such as Miles Davis, John Coltrane, and Dizzy Gillespie, and a songwriting résumé of more than 125 compositions, covered by the likes of Ray Charles, Chet Baker, and Cannonball Adderley. Recently, Heath collected his life story into an autobiography, I Walked with Giants. Celebrate Heath's own towering legacy with the two-hour concert Picture of Heath, featuring Heath himself alongside an all-star lineup of jazz musicians. Picture of Heath features Heath himself alongside jazz musicians such as Bill Charlap (artistic director for Jazz in July), Jeremy Pelt, Steve Wilson, Steve Davis, Jeb Patton, David Wong, and Lewis Nash.
While 92nd Street Y is offering $25 tickets for people under 35 years old (with valid I.D., not valid with this Groupon), those seats are in the rear balcony. This Groupon gets you a ticket that is closer to the front and center. Pick-up for the ticket will be on the day of the event.
Jimmy Heath has received many awards and honors throughout his career, including the Life Achievement Award from the Jazz Foundation of America and the Jazz Pioneers Award from BMI.
