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.
