Clark Terry, RIP

Dad had Clark Terry's album with Coleman Hawkins, "Back in Bean's Bag"(1962), on vinyl. I listened to it a lot. This track, laid back and swinging, is so typical of Clark Terry's work. Major Holley's playful voice-with-bass melody must be what wormed its way into the center of my brain those many years ago. Listening to it again, I find additional pleasure in Tommy Flanagan's little nod toward modal jazz in the piano solo.
