Ike Quebec: “It’s Allright With Me”

16 Jan

On the anniversary of the death of saxophonist Ike Quebec. Despite his last name, Quebec was from Newark, N.J. Accomplished dancer and pianist. Addiction issues troubled him in 50s; rebounded to release his best work in early 60s. Died at 44 in 1963. Leonard Feather: “This incontestably superior musician has been almost totally ignored in the chronicling of the musical form to which he has contributed so much.”
