Tootie Heath, Ethan Iverson, & Ben Street
The members of this inter-generational trio milk each other’s fortes on the new Tootie’s Tempo, meaning swing and swagger overlap, yesterday high fives tomorrow, and poignancy nibbles on the ear of playfulness. There’s plenty of breathing room when the Bad Plus pianist connects with 78-year-old drum legend, and along with bassist Street’s signature agility, they make flapper anthems, Mancini melodramas, and Paul Motian fever dreams sound like birds of a feather.
