What I’m reading

My latest  reading adventure is with an autobiography of the great tenor saxophonist/composer-arranger Jimmy Heath called  I Walked with Giants. Jimmy is an incredible musician who has been in the middle of jazz history since the early 50s up to the present. He hung with John Coltrane, Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis, wrote tunes, arranged for big band, and continues to be a role model for the dedicated, consummate musician. There are many great anecdotes in this book from Jimmy and most of the people he worked with in jazz. A must read for any fan of the music!
