    "I think we should play some bebop," said Ethan Iverson, sitting at An Die Musik's piano Saturday night, "because on stage we have one of the greatest bebop drummers ever." He nodded toward the leader of his trio, Albert "Tootie" Heath, who proved the accuracy of his pianist's claim by busting up a rapid rendition of Charlie Parker's 'Ornithology' with several knock-about drum solos. The 79-year-old Heath no longer played with the physical power of his youth when he recorded with Dexter Gordon and J.J. Johnson, but his ability to find new phrasing for syncopated rhythms was sharper than ever.
