Sung Terry

Helen Sung, among glad tidings, also sends respect for master trumpet player Clark Terry, who passed away last month at 94.

All Music Guide lists him with 2,827 credits and 144 as a leader discography.

Among the long list of things I did not realize, he was also in the Tonight Show band(when it was in New York), so maybe I was listening to him without knowing. He was from St. Louis, originally.
