Some great straight-ahead jazz firmly rooted in the blues. Just great live jazz, recorded at a great Chicago venue. Enjoy!
About the track
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 vibraphonist/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.
