Benard Ighner Italian crate digger extraordinaire David Nerattini with a special show dedicated to jazz and fusion singer/songwriter Benard Ighner. “Everything must change, nothing stays the same”: Benard Ighner, the crystal clear yet powerful voice behind the eternal lyrics of this jazz standard, is the embodiment of what people call a ‘natural’. 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.
