Clark Terry, one of the “grand old men” of jazz, enjoyed a stellar career as soloist with the big bands of Duke Ellington, Count Basie, and The Tonight Show, among others. RR had the grand opportunity to record his fabled trumpet and flugelhorn artistry with Bob Lark and the DePaul University Big band in two programs, both now out of print. THE CHICAGO SESSIONS is a “cream of the crop” selection from both, sonically fine-tuned by “Prof.” Johnson to sound even better than the originals. Extra added attractions are two tunes with scat vocals by Clark Terry’s alter-ego “Mumbles.”
 
Clark Terry’s career in jazz spans more than sixty years. He performed for seven U.S. Presidents, and was a Jazz Ambassador for State Department tours in the Middle East and Africa. More than fifty jazz festivals in all seven continents still feature him. He received a Grammy Award, two Grammy certificates, three Grammy nominations, thirteen honorary doctorates, keys to cities, lifetime achievements and halls of fame awards. He was knighted in Germany and is the recipient of the French Order of Arts and Letters. Clark’s star on the Walk of Fame, and his Black World History Museum’s life-sized wax figure can both be visited in his hometown, St. Louis, Missouri.
“…the sound is superb. Terry’s signature warm tone is beautifully captured, and highlighted just enough to bring it ever-so-slightly front and center. The soundstage is quite large and lifelike, with a tremendous sense of depth and ambience. Dynamics are impressively natural – easy and mellow in ballads, and explosive during the many swinging moments…a very rewarding set.”  
 
Wayne Garcia - The Absolute Sound - December 2007
