Clark Terry - More & Tread Ye Lightly

This release contains the two albums Clark Terry recorded in 1963 for the Cameo-Parkway label. One a sextet, the other an octet. At the height of his powers, buoyant on trumpet and flügelhorn, he adapts to both contexts with typical ease and command and without compromising his instantly recognizable style or musical personality. The equally distinctive giant of the saxophone, Ben Webster, shines with him on the sextet date, contrasting his virile tenor with Terrys joie de vivre and virtuosity. Terry gets strong and fulminating, down-home backing from the octet, including conga drums and harmonica, with everybody having a ball and Seldon Powell, on baritone, tenor, or flute, playing with great depth and conviction.
Both feature excellent rhythm sections buttressed by gifted players in pianists Roger Kellaway and Ray Bryant, and the accomplished guitarist, Gene Bertoncini, and anchored by the firm yet subtle swing of bassists Bill Crow and Major Holley. On these dates Terry and his associates deliver a great set of performances full of warmth, charm and substanceand funky, bluesy, soulful jazz.
