Percy Heath

April 30, 1923, Wilmington, North Carolina – April 28, 2005

Percy Heath was an American jazz bassist, brother to tenor saxophonist Jimmy Heath and drummer Albert Heath, with whom he formed the Heath Brothers in 1975. Heath played with the Modern Jazz Quartet throughout their long history and also worked with Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, Wes Montgomery and Thelonious Monk.

In 2003, at the age of 80, he released his first album as bandleader through the Daddy Jazz label. The album, entitled A Love Song, garnered rave reviews and served as a fitting coda for Heath’s illustrious career.
