Recorded during the mid-'90s, The Chicago Sessions
features legendary trumpeter Clark Terry
performing with the Depaul University Big Band
under the direction of trumpeter Bob Lark
. Compiled out of two hard--to-find recordings, this is '50s and '60s style big-band bop that should appeal to fans of straight-ahead jazz. Terry
sounds in fine form throughout and it is a joy to hear him showcased within such a large and crisply swinging ensemble.
