@allaboutjazz : Played it for more than half a century. With Bird and Miles and Diz and ‘Trane and Brownie and the venerable Modern Jazz Quartet and on and on. And if you’re reading this you know that already, probably. He played in dumps; he played R&B
@allmusic : Financial considerations forced the Modern Jazz Quartet to dissolve in 1974, at which time Heath teamed with brother Jimmy and their youngest sibling, drummer Albert, in the Heath Brothers.
@last.fm : He is the brother of tenor saxophonist Jimmy Heath and drummer Tootie Heath, with whom he formed the Heath Brothers in 1975. Heath also worked with Miles Davis, Dizzy Gillespie, Charlie Parker, and Thelonious Monk.
