      Musicroom Reviews

      Somebody once said that if you think that jazz beyond the New Orleans- or Dixieland-type is unaccessible to the general listener, just let the person in question listen to a Clark Terry-record. Compiled from four Storyville releases, this one offers four fine tracks from 1959 (with Paul Gonsalves’ sensuous tenor a nice bonus) and six from a relaxed 1981 quartet live-session. And while the latter might not be ‘essential Terry’, he’s still one of the jazzmen who can at the same time be serious and make you smile. One track featuring Danish tenor ace Jesper Thilo will most definitely leave you wanting to hear more of their co-operation.
