Tales from the far Side 14.12.17 The Happy Horns of Clark Terry

On this edition you can hear the "Happy Horns" of Clark Terry, one of the most important Jazz trumpeters, fluegelhornists and composers with a brilliant technique and full of rich emotions. And I look back at his extraordinary career, with Terry rising out of the Count Basie Big Band into the Duke Ellington Orchestra and releasing some stunning work as a leader of his own groups and as a sideman with Oscar Peterson and Bob Brookmeier to name only two.

TALES FROM THE FAR SIDE is live on air on CRC102.9fm and on www.crcfm.ie every Thursday 8-9 pm with a repeat on Saturday 9-10 pm. And there is a podcast of the show available on the web site all through the week. The show has established itself over the years with a small but devoted listenership (even beyond Jazz-fans) and since the introduction on internet the listenership extended nationally and internationally.
