Trumpet and Guitar Wizards

Newport Jazz Fest 1966

They called it the “Trumpet and Guitar Workshop.”

It would have been better named “The Summit” or “Mount Olympus.”

Even Clark Terry had to say:

“I didn’t dare bring out by trumpet. There are too many giants up here today.”

Billy Taylor, MC
Clark Terry , trumpet
