For one night only, drummer Tootie Heath joins three great jazz drummers--Louis Hayes, Sylvia Cuenca, and Joe Saylor--for a historical all-percussion performance, featuring four drum sets--and nothing else. Presented the evening before his brother, Jimmy Heath, is celebrated with a 90th birthday bash in the Concert Hall, this rhythm explosion and talent showcase has received rave reviews for its unique take on jazz rhythms and sounds. Part of A Family Affair.


Performance Timing: 75 minutes, with no intermission.
