The irrepressible Clark Terry was all over jazz in the second half of the 20th century, playing a technically demanding but playful style that made him a crowd favorite. Here on this live album from Hamburg, Germany—originally released in 1976—he’s joined by pianist Scott Bradford, bassist Larry Gales (misspelled as “Gailes”), and drummer Hartwig Bartz. One of the earliest jazz proponents of flugelhorn, Terry plays that instrument throughout. He actually opens with trumpet, then trades off the two horns (holding one in each hand) for a very peppy version of “Perdido.” Terry then takes the band through an easy-swinging “On the Trail” that features speedy runs that give Dizzy Gillespie a run for his money (for more of this, also check out “Straight No Chaser”). There's a slow improvised blues that functions as a vehicle for his famous scat singing, and Terry opts to close out with Strayhorn’s “Take the A Train” where he again is in vocal mood after everyone solos. It's now available digitally for the first time, with a fresh mastering job to boot.
