Ira Sullivan is a true jazz legend. He goes back so far that he was snapping fingers with the cool cats in Chicago for the birth of Bebop.
By the time he turned 18, he was playing trumpet, sax, flute, and flugelhorn alongside some of the best in the business. You may also know him from Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers.
Here's what Ira has to say about his new band, Nica de Koenigswarter, and Charlie Parker.
