Nicely scribed, Marc. Jimmy Heath one moment and Rachel Rodgers the next... practically the Omega and Alpha of Jazz today (or this week anyway), a sanguine "Picture of Heath" indeed.


mindboggling young talent. wonderfully joyous feeling watching and listening to her. precise and clear notes, never lazy, a clear demonstration of discipline. just terrific. in her interview, she indicates she never has seen a basist who sang. i would like to direct her to another prodigy-like musician, kate davis. playing with big bands at 13 and 14. youtube her, lots of stuff on her. notably her kennedy center piece, glad to be so unhappy, is simply impeccably done as is her show stopping just one of those things performed live at jimmy mak's in portland, it will blow you away. kate just release her third or fourth cd Kate Davis Live at Jimmy Mak's. chekc it out.
