Legendary Jazz Trumpeter Clark Terry Passes Away at 94

Clark Terry, the subject of 2014's excellent "Keep on Keepin' On" has passed away at the age of 94. As detailed in the documentary, Terry played with some of the most legendary jazz musicians of all time, including Duke Ellington, Dizzy Gillespie, Thelonious Monk, and Quincy Jones, who he helped mentor to fame.H e would never quite become a household name, but he would win a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and influence hundreds of people in his art. As Herbie Hancock says in the documentary, "When you hear Clark, you hear his life. Only a master can do that."

"Keep On Keepin' On" also details CT's (as his friends would call him) relationship with a blind piano prodigy named Justin Kauflin. Instead of just achieving master status in his craft, Terry passed what he knew on to the generations below him. We send our condolences to his friends and family.
