The "Clark Terry Sextet" perform live at the 1977 Montreux Jazz Festival.

Personnel:

Clark Terry, flugelhorn
Oscar Peterson, piano
Ronnie Scott, tenor sax
Niels Pedersen, bass
Joe Pass, guitar
Bobby Durham, drums
Milt Jackson, vibes

In a career spanning over seventy Clark Terry is one of the most recorded men in jazz with over nine-hundred recordings to his credit.

The trumpeter and flugelhornist began playing professionally in the early 1940s in his native St. Louis.

Clark Terry was a member of the naval band during his service in World War II. When he returned in 1945 there were plenty of bands waiting. He has performed with the best groups including those of Count Basie and Duke Ellington.

Terry is also the composer of more than two hundred jazz songs, and the co-author of several books on musical instruction.

Tribute from Larry Blumenfeld

The gatherings that follow a renowned jazz musician’s death honor musical greatness we already knew about. They also reaffirm a sense of community we too easily forget.

That community is bound by musical values first and foremost but also by other things, including a sense of shared purpose and common history. The musical greatness in celebration itself generally has to do with far more than talent and charisma, though trumpeter Clark Terry, who died at 94 on Feb. 21, had those qualities in abundance.

What lends these events special power, more so than the solemn beauty of the music played, are the reflections of character, discipline, boldness and compassion, seriousness of mission and lighthearted humor, and the resonant lessons that run through generations and radiate well beyond music...
