A wonderful man, CT was. He graciously gave me an interview after a past show at the Eastman Theatre which also
featured David Glasser. Clark said, "I enjoyed very much my time with the Ellington band and the Basie band". We then

spoke about Ben Webster. He talked about how Ben Webster had somewhat of a bad temper, stating, "He was like a bull
in a china shop. He was just as brute-a-ful as he was beautiful. Nobody will ever play a ballad like Ben Webster. Nobody!"
The jazz world was lucky to have Clark Terry in it! May you rest in peace Clark.
(December 14, 1920 – February 21, 2015)
