With all of the losses jazz has suffered this year, it's good to know that one of the happiest sounds in jazz is still with us. Here's wishing him a happy birthday.

Phil Schaap is celebrating CT's 93rd on "Traditions in Swing" right now on WKCR. I was ready to hang it up many years ago and get a 'real job' when I got a gig with CT, and decided if he dug my playing, maybe I should stick wid it. He dug me, and I wound up getting a real job later anyway, but nothing can match being recognized by a real giant on the stand.

Happy Birthday, CT, and many more!

My sit down interview with CT a number of years ago remains a treasured memory.

I was thinking the exact same thing.

Happy Birthday to a true great in the music.

Is Mr. Terry now the oldest living major jazz figure?

It depends on how you feel about Sir Charles Thompson.

On iTunes trailers, I noticed a trailer for a new documentary on Clark Terry, called "Keep On Keepin' On." Documentary in theaters 9/19. The trailer's pretty moving.

I'll have to see this when it comes around here.

Here's one of my favorite photos of Clark Terry that I took:

I can't wait to see this film. Clark has been a favorite of mine, as a musician and a person, since the '60s. bless him always and forever. he has the most amazing courage, as does his wife, Gwen.

I don't know why they have to build the whole thing around his relationship with da little white boy; he's not even a trumpet player.

Seems like they're trying to make a tear jerker out of it.

CT's life (if they based it on his autobiography) should be more than enough.

BTW, Clark's buddy, Phil Woods, has an unpublished autobiography that I'd do anything to read.

Here's a pretty long excerpt:
