He never received formal training of any sort, and still managed to master the piano, guitar, bass, drums, flugelhorn, alto, soprano sax and flute. His career as a singer/songwriter really kicked-off under the wings of Dizzy Gillespie, soundtrack maestroLalo Schifrin, and Quincy Jones, who invited Ighner to perform  Everything Must Change  on his jazz-funk classic  Body Heat .   1   The Procession    Lalo Schifrin feat.
