Make Some Happy, Jim Cooper Quintet featuring Ira Sullivan

"Ira brings out the best in everybody, this music is definitely cool-proof! Make Someone Happy also captures some of Cooper's best playing."

John Collar, author, musician.

Recorded in 2000, Jim teams up again with the legendary Ira Sullivan, playing in front of a LIVE audience in Saugatuck, Michigan.  The music consists of jazz standards but, played only the way Ira plays them.  Along with Jim and Ira, the group features Buddy Rich alumni pianist Bob Dogan, bassist Dan DeLorenzo and drummer Joe Grass.  Chicago musicians with a Chicago sound, gritty and full of life.
