Clark Terry

CD (Item 489324) Universal/EmArcy, Mid 50s — Condition: Used
Out Of Stock

CD


4.50 5

A stunner – and one of Clark Terry's finest moments ever! The record has a rawness and groove that you'd hardly expect from his later albums – no surprise, though, considering that it was cut during that really hip time at Emarcy, when the label was working in a mode that was darker and more challenging than many of the smaller labels at the time. Credit is also due to arranger Quincy Jones – who pulls together a group that includes Horace Silver, Jimmy Cleveland, Cecil Payne, and Art Blakey, all into a fiercely grooving sound that recalls some of his most adventurous work of the 50s. The album kicks off with the stunning "Swahili", a tune that will instantly make you happy you bought the record – and other tracks include "Coop", "Chuckles", "Tuma", "Kitten", and "The Countess". (Out of print 1997 Polygram pressing in a beautiful fold-out package. Includes original slipcase.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.
