Editorial Reviews


It was standing room only at the Jazz Showcase, and for good reason... When this week is done, multi-instrumentalist Ira Sullivan and pianist-vibist Stu Katz will have documented one of the more enduring partnerships in jazz. --Howard Reich, Chicago Tribune

Product Description

With a 57-year history of performing together, going back to their 1954 meeting in their hometown of Chicago, the legendary saxophonist/trumpeter Ira Sullivan and vibist/pianist Stu Katz team together finally to commit their well-earned rapport to tape. Recorded live at their good friend Joe Segal's famed Jazz Showcase, with a quintet including pianist Dan Trudell, bassist Dennis Carroll, drummer George Fludas, plus a couple of special guests, A Family Affair swings with the joy and magic that only such a shared history can create.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fabulous January 7, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
What can I say? I can't wait until they make another one. And I'm not saying that just because one of the two lead musicians, Stu Katz and I coincidentally have the same last name, or even more coincidentally because we have the same parents.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ira Sullivan-World's greatest musician September 11, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I'm 82--buying jazz records(etc) since about' current target is Anat Cohen --will see her on The Jazz Cruise.Lifetime feel good musician-Benny Goodman.First saw Ira in the Disney Village Lounge Orlando --a long time ago--HE HAS ALWAYS SEIZED CONTROL OF ANY LIVE SETTING FOR ME --NOT just a player --he makes all the cohorts with him rise above themselves. I'm not a Coltrane,etc fan --Collect all of Chet Baker and BillEvans.Ira hasn't always recorded what he plays live here in Cocoa beach --at Heidi's Jazz lounge--always fast be-bop which doesn,t hop up
my body cells.But this album(Ira Sullivam and Stu Katz) sounds like the Ira I've seen live for 35 yrs-good simple setting straightahead Jazz and won't chase your friends from the room.

3.0 out of 5 stars Keep it in the family March 23, 2014
Format:MP3 Music
Ira Sullivan has shown over the years that he's capable of holding his own on a bandstand with any other instrumentalist--or instrument. At about the same time as he was being given a national showcase by pianist Billy Taylor (exclusively as a trumpet player!), he was playing tenor sax with Art Blakey's Jazz Messengers. I can't think of a single instrument that he's incapable of playing--and at a professional level.

An Ira supporter would have trouble making the case for the polymath musician based on the evidence of this album. It's a pretty loose, overly "comfortable" (and therefore bland), jam session among old friends (including Chicago's legendary jazz promoter, Joe Segal, whose record of bringing first-rate jazz to the Windy City for 65 years should speak for itself (though, given his low profile and comparative lack of kudos, apparently his record of service is not sufficient in itself).

The primary bright spot on this particular recording is the pianist, Dan Trudeau, whose reputation as a younger talent deserving further notice is supported by each of his solo turns. Unfortunately, this is an occasion when the pianist's exclusive attention to the coherence of the rhythm section would have made a greater contribution to the music than his solo work--however inventive or flashy.

I have at least 20 LPs by Red Rodney, Ira Sullivan, and the pair as co-leaders of a quintet. The very best of these recordings--"Red Arrow" (1957)--is almost as perfect as "Kind of Blue." Inexplicably, this essential session has never been reissued under its original title!
