"Due to Clark Terry's good natured disposition and long association with the host, this installment of Piano Jazz is a particularly relaxed and cozy one. A true master of the trumpet, his gorgeous solo on "Come Sunday" gives ample evidence as to why he was so in demand and coveted by both Count Basie and Duke Ellington. He tells the story of how as a child he tried to make himself a horn out of a garden hose and a lead pipe. Apparently the sounds that this "instrument" made prompted the neighbors to chip in and buy him a real horn at the pawn shop. He also demonstrates his unusual "mumbling" style of scat singing and explains how it originated. The playing and conversation are terrific on this cd and I can definitely recommend it to fans of the series."
