Clark Terry meets Bud Powell

When Bud Powell moved to Paris in 1959, he soon began leading “The Three Bosses,” a trio that also featured bassist Pierre Michelot (who succeeded original member Oscar Pettiford) and drummer Kenny Clarke.

But the actual star of the uptempo blues “Pie High” is a guest, the great Clark Terry, a flugelhornist who had the happiest sound in jazz.

On this concise but delightful performance, Terry’s playing is full of joy, there is a drum chorus for Clarke, and a short piano solo by Powell before Terry takes the melody out.

Personnel:

Bud Powell, piano
Clark Terry, flugelhorn
Pierre Michelot, bass
Kenny Clarke, drums
