Our New Mexico Jazz Festival REVISIONED Virtual Concert Event Featuring NEA Jazz Master Albert “Tootie” Heath with Doug Lawrence, tenor saxophone; Dan Trudell, Hammond B3 Organ; and César Bauvallet, congas, continues through June 30! The concert, recorded Live at the Outpost Performance Space, celebrates Tootie’s prolific career in jazz, and this dynamic all-star quartet performs music that incorporates many of the great drumming beats and grooves which Tootie has been known for and which have been documented on numerous iconic recordings with John Coltrane, Dexter Gordon, Yuseff Lateef, The Modern Jazz Quartet, The Heath Bros. and many more. Tootie Heath, who is now a Santa Fe resident, and Doug Lawrence have become good friends over the past few years, and while Lawrence worked many gigs in NYC with Tootie’s late brother, Jimmy Heath, this will be the first time he and Tootie will be performing together. As Doug describes it, “It’s going to be a swinging and groove beat event!” Click Here for Full Details and Tickets!
