For this very worthy Matrix LP, flugelhornist Clark Terry is joined by three residents of Denmark, all American expatriates: pianist Kenny Drew, bassist Red Mitchell and drummer Ed Thigpen. Their repertoire of mostly little-known group originals is fresh, and C.T., who has yet to record an unworthy album, is in typically joyful form. This was the beginning of his association with Red Mitchell, who joins Terry on the vocal of "Snavset Blues."
