Heath Out of the Cool-Flute and Piano-Chester

British composer and flautist, Dave Heath was born in Manchester in 1956. He attended the Guildhall School of Music and Drama. He began playing modern jazz at the age of 17.  As a professional flautist, Heath has recorded in a wide range of styles. Disc he has featured on include a solo feature on Sting’s US-released single Mad About You and various solo recordings with guitarist Dominic Miller, Jerry Dammers’ Free Nelson Mandela, Michael Kamen, Robert Lockhart and Barrington Pheloung. Heath plays on an early Cooper flute, the `Excalibur’, rebuilt for him specially by the renowned flute maker, Albert Cooper.

Heath has written an array of music. In particular, he has composed major works for James Galway, Nigel Kennedy and percussionist Evelyn Glennie. Galway gave the first performance of the flute concerto Free the Spirit with the Philharmonia.

Composer’s Note Out Of The Cool was my first work and inspired by the music of Miles Davis and John Coltrane. It was originally written for the flute, but may equally well be played on the violin, cello or soprano saxophone. The piece is in three sections – slow/fast/slow. I have not marked many dynamics or phrasings, and those shown are suggestions only. The slow sections in particular should be very free rhythmically, and each performer should feel free to interpret the piece in his own way. The pedalling marks, however, are more specific, as I have used them to show how notes and chords are to be sustained. Some of the blurred effects may seem strange at first, but this pedalling is essential to the style of the piece. Above all, Out Of The Cool was written to be enjoyed, so have fun with it! David Heath.
