Jazz Legend Jimmy Heath

3554546-216045833.jpg

Jill Pasternak and Maureen Malloy bring you a conversation with legendary jazz instrumentalist, band leader, and arranger Jimmy Heath. Jimmy and his brother, Albert "Tootie" Heath, will perform at the Kimmel Center on October 15th in the first installment of the Jazz Up Close series.

Maureen began her radio career at WRTI in 1999 while studying broadcasting at Temple University. Determined to make it in the entertainment industry, she took advantage of all the creative opportunities presented to her at WRTI - she hosted the overnight jazz broadcasts through her entire college career, she was an arts and culture reporter, and she soaked up the jazz biz from her many WRTI mentors.
