Starts Off Big in 2016!
The Tampa Jazz Club and the HCC Visual and Performing Arts Series will present the remarkable multi-instrumentalist Ira Sullivan and his band on Sunday, January 31, 2016, at 3:00 PM, in the Mainstage Theatre of the HCC Performing Arts Building in Ybor City.
This concert, Ira’s first Tampa appearance in three years, will be a tribute to Jackie Manthos, his dear friend for decades. Jackie was a founding board member of the Tampa Jazz Club and a devoted supporter of the Bay Area jazz scene, who passed away last October.
A master of the entire range of brass and reed instruments, 5-time Grammy nominee Ira Sullivan was a noted musician in Chicago as a youngster, sharing the stage with Charlie Parker, Miles Davis, and other greats in his teens. He has lived in South Florida since the 60’s and has been an inspiration and guiding light for generations of leading musicians who have taken part in his famed jam sessions through the years.
On January 31, he’ll be joined by his Miami colleague Marc Berner on tenor saxophone and exotic flutes; Bay Area favorites Michael Royal, piano and John Jenkins, drums; and bassist Don Mopsick, a veteran of many years with the Jim Cullum Band on public radio’s ‘Riverwalk.’
The Tampa Jazz Club is committed to encouraging talented young jazz students and to presenting great live jazz in Tampa.
