He is the world's greatest living trumpet player. Period. Even if his solo on Donna Lee ("Bus Seat") isn't his finest, it's a damn clinic in doodle tonguing. I think I've listed to it a million times. Dadool. Daedool. Deedool. Dohdool. Doodle. LOL. Now, at tempo. While I think (no, I'm not sure) he got some licks from Clifford Brown, he's an original voice. One note and you know it's Clark. That doesn't happen anymore. There are a lot of contemporary players I dig, but I'm always asking myself if it's x or y or z. Great players, but nothing distinctive.

Clark Terry is a great musician, and a fine man.

Thanks for bringing him front and center.

I'll never forget seeing him at the old Lake Buena Vista club at Disney world back in the 70s with a house rhythm section. I was there with a bunch of rock musician friends of mine. The place was about half full, and after the first set, Clark notified the audience that they'd be taking a break, stepped off the stage, walked up to our table, pulled out a chair and sat down. "Hiya fellas!". I about "soiled me armour..." as they say. He sat there the whole break just talking to us. He was great. Played his ass off. I wish I could have seen him again, but I never seemed to be anywhere he was playing...
