TheHappyHornsOfClarkTerry

Clark Terry sure knows how to have fun when he records an album, he has that big smile on his face at all times. Jazz fans don’t seem to really take him as serious as other legendary jazz musicians. Maybe its the instrument he’s mostly identified by (played the trumpet also) and pioneered, the flugelhorn. Or maybe because he didn’t record with the more famous jazz musician, like Blakey, Miles and Coltrane. Well, with those particular greats he didn’t but he did perform with Dizzy, the Duke, Clifford Brown, Mingus, Sonny Rollins, Oliver Nelson and even Charlie Parker, just to name only a few. The list is endless, he was involved in the Bebop, Hard Bop and Avant-Garde eras. He continued recording until 2005 but has made various guest performances since then. He is now 93 years old, check his website and learn more. In this particular album “The Happy Horns of Clark Terry” Clark Terry plays both the Trumpet and the Flugelhorn, as the album cover displays. He is joined by Phil Woods on the alto and Ben Webster on the tenor. Excellent album, enjoy!

About the album:

This all-star CD has plenty of memorable moments. Flugelhornist Clark Terry teams up with altoist Phil Woods (who doubles on clarinet), tenor great Ben Webster, pianist Roger Kellaway, bassist Milt Hinton and drummer Walter Perkins for a varied program that includes a rollicking version of “Rockin’ in Rhythm,” Bix Beiderbecke’s “In a Mist,” a Duke Ellington medley and “Return to Swahili” which is mostly a flugelhorn-drums duet. The lively music is quite enjoyable. ~ Scott Yanow Recorded at Rudy Van Gelder Studios, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey in 1964…….Read More
