About Lynn Speakman

The late, great tenor saxophonist and composer Jimmy Heath was a beloved fixture at the Stanford Jazz Festival, performing often as a headliner, and with his brothers, bassist Percy Heath and drummer Albert “Tootie” Heath. Young virtuoso Lynn Speakman had the good fortune to study and work with Jimmy during her summers on the faculty at SJW. In this special tribute, Lynn is joined by a quintet of fantastic SJW faculty artists as she brings her amazing technique and talent to the music that was an essential element of Jimmy Heath.
