Happy Birthday & Speedy Recovery Clark!
You changed my life as a young college student. I was this green kid from Montana and you gave me a scholarship to be at your camp in Iowa. I didn’t know the difference between blues and rhythm changes, but you saw my drive and desire. Thank you for all you do for our jazz family. You put me on the right path and got me fired up to make this music my life.
God bless you as you have blessed us!
Dear Clark Terry, you have given me and countless others the gift of music for so many years. Listening to your recordings, and seeing you perform live, is always an uplifting and inspiring experience. You have recorded so many memorable albums, but “Big Bad Band Live at the Wichita Festival 1974″ and “The Happy Horns of Clark Terry” are two of my all time favorite jazz recordings. I never tire of listening to those. Peace, and be well.
Gid Gay “MUMBLES”…. I have ALL your recordings and DVD’s and just think you’re the greatest, I hope you have a WONDERFUL BIRTHDAY…
AND MANY MORE!!!
You are such an inspiration to us mere mortals…
Dear Clark: I think of you at our Oscar Peterson tribute at Carnegie Hall singing and performing with the great Marian McPartland at the piano. What a night…people went crazy when you left the stage throwing kisses to the public. !
Get well soon, Pat
You’ve been an inspiration to me for many years. I played the trumpet solo on Mongo Santamaria’s recording of “Watermelon Man” and was elated to have played next to you on a Dave Pike session many years ago. You had just returned from a vacation, had not played in a few weeks, and apologized to me before we began for not being in shape. Then the session began and you played your ass off!
All the best to you Clark.
You never would have made it onto Noah’s Ark, Clark Terry is one of a kind. We’re all looking forward to your next concert. Get well soon.
Dear Mr. Terry,
Sending you our love and blessings. You are a constant inspiration to one and all. We will be thinking of you and sending prayers of healing and love. May you be blessed with a quick recovery. Bill & Kris King and the eJazz Family
I know you’ll “Keep on keepin’ on”, ’cause you are irreplaceable.
From a long time friend, my best wishes as you recover and on your 91st Birthday. I can never repay the debt I owe you so I will just say Thank You! I remember when you, Benny Green, Marcus MacLauren, and Louie Nash inspired my high school jazz band. Now Richie Roselli (formerly from Glen Cove) and I have teamed up in Jericho! I treasure the night Clark “victimized” me as he roared through “Mumbles Returns.” Thanks to you, our students were able to experience jazz directly – from a legend! God Bless you as you turn 91! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year! I hope you know how many young lives you have touched! You have always been so good to me and and you are my hero! Feel better my friend…
My love and respect,
Ken Pollitt, Jericho HS
Gwen…I don’t know if you remember, but Clark invited me to your table between sets the last time his big band played at the Blue Note. He is such a great man…take care of him!
I was pivileged to accompany you when I was a graduate student at the Eastman School of Music and it was an honor to host you at the University of Kentucky where I once taught jazz and piano. Your humor and stellar music are invaluable memories. I wish you a speedy recovery! Warmest Regards, Orville Hammond
I have been involved with “JAZZ” for over 50 years both as a Jazz Radio announcer and producer and you have brought me and this music the greatest of joy. Please get well soon.
Hello Clark – I was just looking at a picture of you and me when you played with the NJ All State Jazz Band about a dozen years ago. When you performed with Denis DiBlasio and the band and traded on “Mumbles Returns” you gave such a beautiful gift to everyone and you encouraged yet another generation of young jazz musicians. I guess that’s just your magic.
Happy Birthday and best wishes for a speedy recovery. The next generation awaits…

Best wishes during the holiday season. One of my favorite albums is “The Power of Positive Swinging” with you and Bob Brookmeyer. Also remember some great nights listening to you at the Village Vanguard. Last time I spoke to you was on the phone to talk about John Dankworth.
To this day, I remember the wonderful program we did with the 5th grade children in New Jersey. You were such an inspiration to them…by the end of the hour, they were all scatting!!
I also remember what a wonderful time we had on the S.S. Norway Jazz cruise…my very first concert was with you and Al Grey…what a treat for me. We celebrated your birthday on the S.S. Oosterdam in 2006 too.
Here;s wishing you many more years of music, inspiring young players, good spirits and we look forward to hearing you play again.
With love and affection
Hello Clark and Gwen,

Alyce and Rochelle
You are a great artist and have brought a lot of joy to jazz lovers across the world for a long time. I pray for your continued health and happiness.
You are an inspiration and role model! Wishing you a speedy recovery, happy birthday and peace and blessings in this holiday season.
With warmest personal regards.
My best wishes for a speedy recover and happy 2012 to one of the all-time greats, not to mention my St. Louis homeboy. You are an ongoing inspiration to countless lovers of music and life./Bob
I met you when I was a little girl with my dad, “Ditty” Dozier. He sat in a few “gigs” with you & Mercer Ellington. He always told me you were an inspiration to him. You are one of the reasons he loved music so much. I want to take this opportunity to thank you for making his smile so bright after he left a rehearsal with you. My prayers and thoughts will always be with you and your lovely family. God Bless
With warmest regards,
Sending you all the good vibes and best wishes from everyone in Chicago!
