—Earl Harvin, on Unfair Park
Shelley Carrol has spent the better part of the afternoon phoning jazzers with whom Ivery played—among them, Wynton Marsalis, who would jam with Ivery at Sandaga Market on Levee Street whenever he came to town. They were there last December and only last month. And in January they performed together at a tribute to Texas tenors at the Trinity Jazz Festival. Marchel's been laid to rest now, but no doubt there will be memorial concerts to come; his loss will be deeply felt by the players who admired him and the fans who adored him.
"He plays here almost every week," says Terilli's manager, Joey Terilli. "Has since I was 24, and I'm 38. I always call him 'Marchel My Bell,' and I can't do it no more. It's a crushing thing to me and to the music industry. I don't ever cry, but this, it brought a tear to my eye."
