Picks and Pans Review: Brotherly Love

UPDATED 04/26/1982 at 01:00 AM EDT Originally published 04/26/1982 at 01:00 AM EDT

The Heath Brothers

Laying back even more than usual, Jimmy and Percy Heath have turned out another album of sensuous jazz. There's one standard, Autumn in New York, and five originals, including Jimmy's lightly swinging Homes, a tribute to the late bassist Sam Jones. Jimmy, on tenor and soprano sax, characteristically flaunts his musical ideas more than his technique, and Percy, on bass and a smaller "baby" bass, lays a thoughtful foundation, responding subtly to his brother's lead. Keyboardist Stanley Cowell, guitarist Tony Purrone and drummer Akira Tana provide splendid support. This album demands to be listened to on a starry evening with a bottle of champagne and someone else who appreciates fine jazz.
