Saddened to learn about the passing of Ira Gitler.
 
If you had anything to do with the jazz world either as a musician, colleague or jazz fan Ira Gitler mentored us all through his many books, articles, liner notes and of course his Biographical Encyclopedia of Jazz  that he help compile along with Leonard Feather.
 
I had the good fortune to know and hang with Ira Gitler on many occasions.
 
Here’s a couple of photos I took from my personal archive.
