Just found out that Dallas tenor sax master Marchel Ivery passed away from pneumonia at Presbyterian this morning.  He was 69, and had been scheduled to play Terrilli’s this evening.  He’ll be sorely missed.  Robert Wilonsky’s got a nice write-up on him here, along with an MP3 of Ivery with Cedar Walton, Lyles West and Ed Soph doing Cole Porter’s “Every Time We Say Goodbye.”

  • Marchel Ivory is such a legend and KERA had the privilege of featuring him from time to time. Decades ago we did a profile on him for a Juneteenth special on KERA13 and most recently, our great colleague Rob Tranchin has produced a 30 minute television special on the landmark South Dallas Pop Festival that occured in the 70’s. Mr. Ivory is in it.
    We will broadcast this documentary in the spring and at least we can retain a bit of his talent.
