Now's the Time: Clark Terry

I trust that the fine educators at the Kansas City Youth Jazz project have made certain that their students have witnessed this vintage Clark Terry video. Now a vigorous 87-years-old, the trumpeter is the very definition of an elder statesman. Still, the kids need to be reminded that the legend they'll perform with Sunday was once a prank-loving young man. Terry's solo begins at 2:20.

It is sad to see that Mr. Terry has fallen ill and will not be performing tonight.

Oh no!

Thanks for the heads-up, UL.
