 IRA SULLIVAN PASSES AT 89

I just wanted to say a few words about Ira Sullivan's passing on Sept. 21.  Ira was a mentor to many of us, his musicality was unmatched on whatever instrument he was playing.  His tone on trumpet, sax or flute was impeccable. I learned about being  a bandleader and how to take changes on stage from Ira.  An Ira performance was never ordinary but, spirited and spontaneous. I worked with him off and on through the years and recorded 3 CDs with him.    He could be a taskmaster in the studio but, he was always trying to get the best out of everyone.  Ira, we will all miss you. Thanks for your spirt and musical genius.  I look forward to jamming with you again in the heavenly realms.
