Yesterday I saw a lot of Clark’s videos and I had tears in my eyes… But I was not sad, I was crying for joy listening to your wonderful sounding, your humanity and your humour. I will spread everywhere the great art of the fantastic, wonderful and splendid CLARK TERRY! Clark, I never met you, but I feel like I always knew you… I already miss you.
I like imagine you joining to the great Duke Ellington Heaven Orchestra with all others.
Thanks a million!
My deepest condolences to your family.

…and his music lives on!
Not just a wonderful artist but a wonderful human being. He would be pleased to know how many lives he touched through his music and his kindness. He will not be forgotten.
I was driving home from the airport when I tuned into WKCR and heard back-to-back tracks featuring Clark. Not a very odd thing in itself, but given CT’s state of health, that was my first clue that perhaps the musical tribute was to mark his passing. This was confirmed by a new friend of mine Misha Tsiganov, a wonderful pianist who also loved and even recorded with Clark.
Clark, with his jaw-dropping musical talent, his never ending humor, and his enormous generosity and commitment to helping and encouraging others, including me, will always be an inspiration and will be sorely missed.
My deepest condolences.
Thank you for your music. RIP.
Gwen, my heartfelt condolences to you. Clark was one of a kind, with emphasis on “kind.” I recall fondly the evening when I brought my 16-year grandson to Pine Bluff to meet Clark. I told him to bring along his alto, just in case. Clark had just finished up an instructional session with another alto player, Lionel, a Californian who was attending college in Pine Bluff. When Clark saw that Michael had his horn, he induced Lionel to get out his horn again. Clark conducted a two-person seminar — the neophyte teenager and the accomplished college player. What a thrill and what an inspiration for my grandson, who’s now a music major at Colorado State University.
My most heartfelt condolences to Gwen and the Terry family. Clark has always been one of my biggest inspirations. I was lucky enough to meet him and shake his hand after a tribute to Duke gig in New York in the early 2000s one snowy evening.

Please accept my condolences to you and your family on the loss of your dear CT. He was a very close and special friend of my husband, Bob (who passed in Oct. of 2012)and mine. We met back in the middle ’60’s at the Mid-West Band Clinic at a downtown Chicago hotel. Clark was a guest at our home for dinner in 1971. Throughout the years we enjoyed keeping in contact with him through visits to music clinics, cruises, post cards and many phone calls. My special gratitude to you, Gwen, for all your loving care of this kind and musical legend. Bob and I have always felt special and blessed that we were able to share in friendship with CT since 1965. I’m praying for you and your family and I know CT is playing in that big bad band with all the other jazz greats. Thanks for all the memorable moments, CT. I will never forget you!
thank you to Clark a musician who teaches us to love the music!
he receives all the love in the world.

We will miss you Mumbles. I’ve followed you since my college days in the 60’s. I agree with the Duke, you were the best trumpet soloist in the world. You will be missed but to continue your work, I will be making a donation to your foundation.
Thanks a million time for the music
clark came to our local college to do a clinic in 1973 and he asked for a volunteer to come up on stage. my band director held my hand up and told me to get up there and meet clark, he said it would be a memory that would last forever. those ten minutes interacting with him will always be special. thank you clark for sharing your talent with so many students like me.
Clark, you touched everyone who ever heard you with your big sound and everyone who ever met you with your big heart; the world is a better place for your having been in it, with love …. ND
My father was so fortunate to have had such a wonderful association with Cee Tee. Dad knew Clark for about 40 years and wrote and arranged tunes for him. In 1978,dad arranged some string tunes for jazz at the Wichita Jazz Festival.He directed the strings with Clark on the flugglehorn.(I met him at that festival behind stage) If you have ever heard the tune “Ursula” , my father wrote it for Clark. Clark always used to say ” You wrote your ass off again Fletch ” Toward the end of my dads life he got re-married and Clark was his best man. Keep on playin’ “Mumbles” in the hereafter Cee Tee. God bless you, Gary V Fletcher jr.
