Clark Terry On Piano Jazz

One of the great innovators and educators in jazz, Clark Terry (1920–2015) was celebrated for his technical virtuosity and swinging lyricism. He is featured in the 2014 documentary Keep On Keepin' On, which chronicles his mentorship of emerging jazz pianist Justin Kauflin.

In memory of Terry, who died in February, Piano Jazz brings you this 1994 episode, which captures the master trumpeter's magic and humor as he and host Marian McPartland play "The Snapper" and "Wham."

Originally broadcast in the winter of 1994.
