COMPLETE ALBUMS COLLECTION: 1961-1963 - A master in both bebop and swing territory, Terry lent his trumpeting talent to hundreds of recordings, as well as becoming the first flugelhorn pioneer in the genre. Making his name playing in the big bands of Charlie Barnet, Count Basie and Duke Ellington in the 1940s and '50s, Terry would go on to share his musical knowledge, mentoring younger jazz talents; not only fellow trumpet players such as Miles Davis and Wynton Marsalis, but such diverse stars as Herbie Hancock, Dianne Reeves and Pat Metheny. Over his seven decades of service to music, Terry has been recognised generously albeit deservedly by receiving over 250 awards, including being inducted into the Jazz Hall of Fame in 2013, getting the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2010, the 1991 NEA Jazz Master Award, sixteen honorary doctorates and even a German knighthood. Sadly, on 13th February 2015, Clark Terry entered hospice care to help manage his advanced diabetes, and passed away eight days later at the age of 94. There is little doubt that Clark Terry will be remembered as one of the most talented and versatile musicians to ever grace the jazz idiom, turning his hand to any number of styles and practices. This four disc collection contains his complete works as bandleader during the period that would mark his rise to international fame, allowing him to break boundaries and achieve accolades that few since have been able to replicate.
