Remembering Dan Terry
Trumpet player Dan Terry passed on at the age of 87 on the 27th of December. Another player with an astounding pedigree. He wrote scores for movies (The Hustler, The Manchurian Candidate), recorded 8 albums between 1952 and 1999, and played with the likes of Count Basie and Sarah Vaughn. I went looking for some of his music and found the cut below. If you like big band and trumpets, then this guy was for you. Love that sound.
