Altadena was a suite commissioned by the Los Angeles Jazz Society in 2013, composed by pianist Richard Sears. It recognises the legacy of drummer Albert 'Tootie' Heath, who worked with icons including John Coltrane, Wes Montgomery, Kenny Barron and others. Heath - who is now in his 80s - joins Sears' sextet on the drum kit, and we'll hear two parts of the recording on this episode.
Also on the show, a new live album from Sydney bassist Brendan Clarke, alongside US drummer Joe Farnsworth. Plus classic recordings by Sonny Rollins, Duke Ellington and Miles Davis.
