The brilliant careers of Philadelphia’s Heath Brothers (Percy, Jimmy, & Albert Tootie) are traced in an absorbing documentary. The film features extensive concert footage of the Heaths as well as new interviews with an array of friends and fellow musicians, fascinating archival material about the Heaths’ family life and early professional activities, and rarely seen footage of Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, and other bebop figures. The centerpiece is a July 2004 concert held at Coventry Grove, Kensington, California. Among the musicians interviewed Sonny Rollins, Herbie Hancock, Taj
Mahal, Jack DeJohnette, Christian McBride, and Marian McPartland.
