Cameron Handel   'Happy horns of Clark Terry'

Local jazz trumpeter Cameron Handel returns to lead a quintet through the classic, influential and virtuosically, fun music of legendary jazz trumpeter Clark Terry. Terry’s innovations over his seventy year career and his 900+ recordings are difficult to qualify, but easy to recognize when some of Charleston’s best jazz musicians come together to play his music. The program will feature original Clark Terry compositions, as well as tunes that he helped popularize throughout his career.
Cameron Handel – Trumpet
Mark Sterbank – Saxophone
Sam Sfirri – Piano
Kevin Hamilton – Bass
Ron Wiltrout – Drums

It was a very interesting concert. The duet with her trumpet and herself (mumbling) and the one on the mouth piece (buzzing) were very inspiring.
You can see that she has a classical background (good technique). In her solo's she show a lot of technique and scales rather then melody but it was good so... I was really happy to have found the JAC organisation here in Charleston, jazz always gives me a safe, free and good feeling and it was nice to finish the night with. It's a pretty small group of people her and I bought a book about the history of Jazz in Charleston from Jack McCray. Looking forward to reading that one!
Terry Clark is a great trumpeter and so is his music, I loved it! I'm going to look his music some more the next days.
