Shades of Blues

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Scott Yanow
Clark Terry at 74 teams up with the veteran wa-wa trombone of Al Grey, pianist Charles Fox and bassist Marcus McLaurine to interpret 11 blues on this highly enjoyable release. Still very much in his musical prime, fluegelhornist Terry has one of the happiest sounds in jazz and he gives a surprising amount of variety to the otherwise similar material. Terry's humorous vocal on "Whispering the Blues," his quick tradeoffs between his two horns the fluegelhorn and a muted trumpet on "Cool Vibes" and his interplay with Al Grey make this an easily recommended CD.
