Clark Terry: Serenade To A Bus Seat (CD: Riverside Keepnews Collection)Clark Terry: Serenade To A Bus Seat (CD: Riverside Keepnews Collection)
Until the mid-Fifties, Clark Terry--who was to become a valued regular on the jazz record scene--had been hidden in the trumpet sections of major orchestras (Ellington, Basie, Hampton). He began his climb to prominence with an appearance on Thelonious Monk's notable Brilliant Corners LP, soon followed by a series of his own Riverside albums, of which this was the first (the title refers to the one-nighters of his big-band past). The contents here are undiluted hard bop: five Terry originals, two standards, one by Charlie Parker. The supporting cast is totally first class for this era; and it's worth noting that two mainstays of the Riverside team of recording artists, Johnny Griffin and Wynton Kelly, were both appearing on the label for the first time.

Clark Terry & Bob Brookmeyer Quintet: The Complete Live Recordings 1962-65 (CD: Fresh Sound, 2 CDs)Clark Terry & Bob Brookmeyer Quintet: The Complete Live Recordings 1962-65 (CD: Fresh Sound, 2 CDs)
This is the spirited Clark Terry-Bob Brookmeyer quintet that was the talk of the town from when they began playing regularly in New York in 1961 until 1965. The group topped the jazz polls at the time – ahead of Miles Davis. Their exuberance and joy in playing was palpable, with Terry, mostly on flugelhorn, tearing through solo after solo with Brookmeyer (valve trombone) as ruggedly convincing.

Three different rhythm sections are heard here: pianist Eddie Costa, bassist Joe Benjamin and drummer Osie Johnson on the first set from New York’s Half Note club. The London session has local musicians Laurie Holloway on piano, Rick Laird, bass and Allan Ganley, drums. Finally, again from the Half Note: Roger Kellaway, piano; Dave Bailey, drums and Bill Crow, bass. Tenor man, Zoot Sims replaces Terry on two tracks to add to the value of this formidable set of live recordings. (Discovery Records)

Clark Terry Septet: What Makes Sammy Swing (CD: Lone Hill Jazz)
“What Makes Sammy Swing” (1963) features an All-Star Septet, led by Clark Terry, featuring outstanding soloists including Phil Woods (playing clarinet and flute in addition to alto sax), Urbie Green, Seldon Powell and Dave McKenna. Other personnel includes George Duvivier, Mel Lewis, Kenny Clarke & Elek Bacsik.

The bonus album, “Paris 1960”, comprises three 1960 small group sessions recorded in France featuring Quentin Jackson (singing on two tracks!) and French pianist Martial Solal. It includes 5 tracks recorded for the French film “Si le vent te fait Peur”.

First published in 1941, ‘What Makes Sammy Run?’ was originally a novel by Budd Schulberg - a rags to riches story chronicling the rise and fall of Sammy Glick, a Jewish boy born in New York's Lower East Side. It was later made into a successful Broadway show with music by Ervin Drake and in 1963, Clark Terry and an all-star group of musicians were asked to make a record with jazz versions of some of the musical’s songs, with arrangements by Pat Williams. Two very rare albums on CD for the first time. (Discovery Records)
