Description

An audio recording of "You Must Believe in Spring," composed by Michel Legrand (b. 1932), with lyrics by Alan Bergman (b. 1925), Marilyn Bergman (b. 1929), and Jacques Demy (1931-1990), and performed by Ira Sullivan (b. 1931) live on-air on WUCF-FM on December 8, 2006. A multi-instrumentalist, Sullivan was a crucial part of the Chicago jazz scene of the 1950s, performing with numerous artists, including a stint with Art Blakey (1919-1990) and the Jazz Messengers in 1956. He left the spotlight and moved to Florida to raise his family in the early 1960s, eventually starting a quintet with Red Rodney (1927-1994). Sullivan taught summers at the University of Miami's Young Musician's Camp, in which professional musicians and faculty from the UM School of Music instructed students between 7 and 18 years old in classical music, jazz, rock, songwriting, composition, and musical theater. "You Must Believe in Spring" is a 1967 jazz standard often associated with Bill Evans (1929-1980), who recorded the song for his 1981 album of the same name, and as a duet with Tony Bennett (b. 1926) on their 1977 album, Together Again.
