Happy Horns Of Clark Terry

LP (Item 73601) Impulse, 1964 — Condition: Used
Gatefold
Temporarily Out Of Stock

LP, Vinyl record album


5.00 5

A really great little album – one that really gets at the bright, joyous feel that Clark Terry brings to his music! Despite the "happy" in the title – which might make you think this one would be a bit silly – the album's a pretty great record! Terry plays both trumpet and flugelhorn (hence the "horns" in the title) – and he's working with a spare, tight, and surprisingly creative group that includes drummer Walter Perkins, bassist Milt Hinton, pianist Roger Kellaway, and the sax team of Phil Woods and Ben Webster. Tunes are light and playful, but never sloppy – instead quite inventive, and done in a way that's halfway between Terry's own late 50s work as a leader (as on Argo), and some of his work on sessions like Ed Thigpen's magnificent Out Of The Storm. Titles include "Jazz Conversations", "High Towers", "In A Mist", "Rockin In Rhythm", "Return To Swahili", and "Impulsive". (Green label ABC pressing. Cover has a cutout notch, light wear, small light stains inside the gatefold, and small splits on the top and bottom seams.)  © 1996-2014, Dusty Groove, Inc.

This period of Chico's is one of his weirdest, and it's kind of hard to figure out where he was heading, but the trip to that ... LP, Vinyl record album
