  10. 1950’s listening booths for jazz records. how popular were places like this? Were these booths in just about all record stores? I’m guessing that the records were not sealed.

  13. Verve Announces Posthumous Jimmy Heath Album, ‘Love Letter’ Verve recently announced the release of saxophonist Jimmy Heath’s final recording, an album completed just one month prior to his Jan. 19 death at the age of 93. Love Letter, a collection of ballads that spans covers like “Con Alma” and Heath originals, counts contributions by trumpeter Wynton Marsalis, pianist Kenny Barron, guitarist Russell Malone, drummer Lewis Nash, as well as vocalists Gregory Porter and Cécile McLorin Salvant. For the album, the bandleader mainly sticks to alto, picking up the soprano saxophone for “Inside Your Heart,” a piece originating in a 2010 suite Heath recorded with the Seattle Repertory Jazz Orchestra. https://downbeat.com/news/detail/posthumous-jimmy-heath-album-announced?fbclid=IwAR1FLAz6u6EhK1c-BJ7ZlmwMi7SVcZRCmbboCggK9ARhz8qnB40dc21dVZU
