All Music Guide - Ken Dryden
Gil Evans' historic arrangement of excerpts from George Gershwin's Porgy and Bess folk opera became one of the most important records ever released by trumpeter Miles Davis. But no one else revisited this score until it was transcribed by Jeff Lindberg, along with Charles Harrison III for this release featuring guest Clark Terry who celebrated his 83rd birthday between the recording sessions with the Chicago Jazz Orchestra, conducted by Lindberg. Not only was Terry an early influence on the young Davis, but he is a far more expressive trumpeter who doubles on fl?gelhorn, while also possessing a fatter tone, greater range, and more personality on his instruments, though this ...

Gil Evans' historic arrangement of excerpts from George Gershwin's Porgy and Bess folk opera became one of the most important records ever released by trumpeter Miles Davis. But no one else revisited this score until it was transcribed by Jeff Lindberg, along with Charles Harrison III for this release featuring guest Clark Terry who celebrated his 83rd birthday between the recording sessions with the Chicago Jazz Orchestra, conducted by Lindberg. Not only was Terry an early influence on the young Davis, but he is a far more expressive trumpeter who doubles on flügelhorn, while also possessing a fatter tone, greater range, and more personality on his instruments, though this CD was not intended to eclipse the earlier achievement of Davis. Terry's flügelhorn beautifully projects the emotion of Porgy in the soulful "Bess, You Is My Woman Now," while capturing the pain of Bess in the plaintive "My Man's Gone Now." Terry's touch of humor is displayed in "Fisherman, Strawberry and Devil Crab" and the saucy "It Ain't Necessarily So." He switches to muted trumpet for the lightly swinging "Summertime." Terry's vocals, always a favorite of his fans, are heard in the brief rendition of "Here Come de Honey Man," complete with the usual jocular asides typical when Terry sings. The CD is wrapped with the boisterous celebration "There's a Boat Dat's Leavin' Soon for New York." Throughout the sessions, the orchestra provides superb accompaniment for its special guest, while Art Hoyle joins Terry as a second flügelhorn soloist for the one original by Evans, "Gone." This is a very fitting salute to the earlier album by Miles Davis and Gil Evans which easily exceeds the expectations of typical re-creations of historic sessions.

    Clark Terry Captures Porgy & Bess

    From the opening fanfair of Buzzard Song to the uplifting melody of There's a Boat That's Leaving Soon for New York the clear, full, rich tones of Clark Terry bring renewal to the ever popular Gershwin tunes. Along with Jeff Lindberg and the Chicago Jazz Orchestra, Clark Terry tells the story with the passion that made Progy & Bess so memorable. Gone, Gone, Gone allows Clark to soar while Summertime is relaxed and not cut from the standard renditions so overworked my lesser artist. This is some of the finest jazz work produced in decades. This CD will be one of the most used must haves in any collection. From long clear tones to fingering that belies Clark's many years of entertaining this CD expresses his greatest achievement. I only wish I had a third hand to give this effort a three thumbs up!!!
