Many jazz musicians perform in tribute to their colleague and trumpet legend, Clark Terry.
Funds collected at this concert will be used to help defray medical costs for Clark Terry, who has recently come home from the hospital after major surgery. His autobiography will be available at the event.
The initiative is supported by the Duke Ellington Society, International Women in Jazz, the Jazz Foundation of America and Saint Peterâ€™s Church.
About Clark Terry
Clark Terry is the consummate freelance musician, able to add a distinctive element to whatever band or jam session of which he is a part. His exuberant, swinging horn playing was an important contribution to two of the greatest big bands in jazz, Count Basie's and Duke Ellington's.
