Personnel: Clark Terry (trumpet); Barry Galbraith (guitar); Oscar Pettiford (cello); Jimmy Hamilton (clarinet); Cecil Payne (baritone saxophone); Jimmy Cleveland (trombone); Horace Silver (piano); Osie Johnson, Art Blakey (drums).
Liner Note Author: Mat¡as Rinar.
Recording information: Fine Studio Recording, NY (??/??/1954-01/04/1955); New York, NY (??/??/1954-01/04/1955).
Arranger: Quincy Jones.
With the exception of three songs cut as V-Discs in 1947, this set contains flugelhornist Clark Terry's first recordings as a leader. Joined by trombonist Jimmy Cleveland, baritonist Cecil Payne, pianist Horace Silver, Oscar Pettiford on cello, bassist Wendell Marshall, and drummer Art Blakey, Terry performs eight obscure songs that are arranged quite expertly by Quincy Jones. Terry sounds much more influenced by Dizzy Gillespie than he would in just a couple of years, but his good-humored musical personality and control of his horn were already obvious. With Pettiford offering occasional cello solos (in addition to playing second bass) and Cleveland in top form, this is an LP long overdue to be reissued on CD. ~ Scott Yanow
