A Conversation with Jazz Legend Jimmy Heath

February 17, 2010

Friday, February 19
Lecture @ 4:00 p.m.
Book Signing @ 6:00 p.m.

Jazz legend Jimmy Heath—composer of more than 100 songs, three-time Grammy nominee, and performer on more than 125 albums—tells his life story through I Walked With Giants, a compelling new autobiography published by the Temple University Press.

Over his long career, Heath played with John Coltrane, Miles Davis, and Dizzy Gillespie. On February 19th, Heath shares his stories—from growing up in South Philadelphia to becoming one of the most-respected musicians in his genre—at Temple University Libraries. This event will include live jazz performance and an interview with Heath by Bob Perkins. At 6:00 p.m., Heath will sign copies of I Walked with Giants, which will also be on sale.
