AllMusic Review by

You've Changed presents journeyman saxophonist Jimmy Heath in an unadorned setting that exhibits his talents in full splendor. Also a noted composer -- three of the pieces here are his -- this session showcases Heath's sound, which is as smoky and sweet as the best whiskey. Heath plays with fluid drive. The composer in him never takes a break as evidenced by the logical flow of his melodic ideas. The band is a pared down version of the Heath Brothers with regulars Tony Purrone and brother Tootie Heath on board joined by bassist Ben Brown. Purrone's smooth, bluesy fretwork provides just the right foil for the leader.
