So who gives you a jazz high?

Going through old threads and I came across this one.

Listening to Jimmy Heath does it for me. If you see him live, you know his love for playing music is shooting out of him to his audience. I can close my eyes and visualize every note he is playing.

Have to say I agree with every word of that, based on hearing the wonderful Mr Heath live.

Rather than artists, single tracks do it for me. A good example for me is Sheena Easton's "Morning Train" aka "9 to 5". This record does it for me every time.

I'm with you 100%, sidewinder.

Seeing him live in New York in the early 2000s was a revelation. Such a nice person as well as a great tenor player.

His album "Triple Threat" would be one I took to the desert island!
