This was Su Terry's very first record date as a bandleader. Clark Terry was the special guest on trumpet. The date was produced by the legendary Helen Keane, who worked with pianist Bill Evans among many other greats. The drummer was Charli Persip, another legend, who played with Dizzy Gillespie, Billy Eckstine and countless others.
The date took place on two days in July of 1993 during a massive heat wave in New York City. The original analog tapes were lost. The recording was rescued by the archived digital files.
Clark Terry was unable to read any music for the date due to his diminishing vision. In order to make it easy for him, Su arranged the 3 tunes he played on so that she and trombonist Clark Gayton played the harmony parts around Clark Terry's melody part.
CT used to call Su "Sis" although they are unrelated. They had many opportunities to perform together over the years, and CT graciously agreed to be the special guest on Su's first recording as a bandleader.
