Clark Terry Honored at the Grammy Awards

3 Feb

Is there a jazz musician alive today that deserves the Lifetime Achievement award more than Clark Terry? I’m happy to see that he was recognized for that award this year at the Grammy Awards, along with Bobby Darin, Michael Jackson, David “Honeyboy” Edwards, Loretta Lynn and Andre Previn. Clark was quoted as saying at the ceremony “I’m going to keep doing it until I get it right”. Congrats to one of my trumpet heroes, and the man that still possesses the happiest sound in jazz.
