It seems that Clark Terry joined Big Prez last night ... Can we find the words to thank him for all the musical happiness he gave us and the great human example he was for us?

"Our beloved Clark Terry has joined the big band in heaven where he'll be singing and playing with the angels. He left us peacefully, surrounded by his family, students and friends. Clark has known and played with so many amazing people in his life. He has found great joy in his friendships and his greatest passion was spending time with his students. We will miss him every minute of every day, but he will live on through the beautiful music and positivity that he gave to the world. Clark will live in our hearts forever.
With all my love, Gwen Terry"

Thanks for sharing the news albeit sad. Great sound - the first thing that comes to mind when I hear mention of his name.

So many of my elders (many not that much older than I) have passed, I've come to be a little jaded about receiving the news. But this time, I really feel genuine sorrow. I don't know where you are now, Mumbles, but I miss you already.
You can't blow it if you haven't lived it.

Thanks for the Memories and the fun.
Why do I like a bell that Points UP ?
- because the spit does not run back into my mouth!
I've never met you in my life; not even had the chance of listening to you playing live. But it is a fact that you influenced my playing massively, and to the better. Thank you.
