Overview

Flugelhornist Clark Terry, who was nearly 79 at the time of this live recording, was still in fine form; in fact, in remarkably good shape considering his age and his instrument. Terry and his regular band of the period (with altoist David Glasser, pianist Don Friedman, bassist Marcus McLaurine, and drummer Sylvia Cuenca) are joined on a number or two apiece by vocalists Shirley Horn ("But Beautiful"), Etta Jones ("East of the Sun"), Vanessa Rubin, and Carrie Smith, but it is the instrumentals (which include Terry's "Opus Ocean," "The Nearness of You," "The Snapper," and "Is It True What They Say About Dixie") that are most memorable. As is typical of a Clark Terry set, the results are joyful, often humorous, and swinging.
