Album Review

Recorded during the mid-'90s, The Chicago Sessions features legendary trumpeter Clark Terry performing with the Depaul University Big Band under the direction of trumpeter Bob Lark. Compiled out of two hard—to-find recordings, this is '50s and '60s style big-band bop that should appeal to fans of straight-ahead jazz. Terry sounds in fine form throughout and it is a joy to hear him showcased within such a large and crisply swinging ensemble.

Customer Reviews

this is a great album

This is a fine album of the kind of tunes that define Clark Terry as one of the greatest jazz players, and trumpet players, ever. Chicago always was a fertile stomping ground for Clark and his melodious horns, and this album is a tasty, all-you-can-eat banquet of rare, juicy, jazz, with a huge side-helpin of swing on the side. Clark is not getting any younger, and his health has not been great of late. Thankfully, this album is a portrait of Clark Terry at the zenith of his playing career and a doctoral thesis of trumpet jazz. Buy it and enjoy it. Maybe even transcribe it. You'll be better for it.

He gained early experience playing trumpet in the viable St. Louis jazz scene of the early '40s (where he was an inspiration for Miles Davis) and, after performing in a Navy...
