Wash. DC Jazz Network "Book of the Year"--Autobiography of Jimmy Heath "I Walked with Giants"
Jimmy Heath and Joseph McLaren, foreword by Bill Cosby, introduction by Wynton Marsalis "I have long admired Jimmy's passion heard so clearly in his music; he is a soulful musician and a consummate educator. In these pages he gives a new voice to his love of life and music. He once told Dr. Camille Cosby that ‘our history is a mystery,’ so here he pulls back the veil and sets forth a wonderful collection of reminiscences culled from a long life of accumulated wisdom."
