Albert 'Tootie' Heath

Jazz on the bandstand is as much about variety as it is confluence, and this intergenerational trio unites a handful of historic vernaculars into its unique jargon. Meaning pre-bop rhythmic ploys might be wedged against moments of modernism — few songbooks open the door to both James P. Johnson and Eric Dolphy. One thing’s certain: As the septuagenarian drummer sets everything in motion — check the action on the impressive Tootie’s Tempo — the power of poise is set in high relief.
Jan. 29-30, 9:30 p.m., 2014
