Format: Audio CD
This is the man who gave Miles Davis some of his earliest lessons in the art of Jazz trumpet. His runs and timing are clearly discernible in the early work of Monsieur Davis and there is certainly a thread of influence which pervades stuff like 'Birth of the Cool'. However, you should not just give Clark Terry a listen because of his famous connenction with other greats.
His style alone is worth the attention, and I find this is a particularly useful album to play along to and try to use to improve my own skills. If a good rhythm section, tight little solos and lots of space to improvise over is what you're after then this is the album for you. It is not overly progressive, which means that you won't get bogged down in the heavier sections of the album but there is enough of a swing to get your rug dangling like its never dangled before! There is also a rather interesting bit to listen out for - check out Miles' entry on trombone in the second song. Its uncredited, but rumour has it that this is the first time Miles Davis evr played trombone on an album. It wasn't to be the last!
Enjoy this little piece of Clark - he is one of the oldest jazzmen around and a valid addition to your jazz collection.

HASH(0x9c66960c) out of 5 stars Major Bop 24 Feb. 2002
By John Chapin - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Bus Seat contains one of the best recordings of Donna Lee I've ever heard. Griffin and Terry were clearly spurring each other on during these sessions, and the results were one of the best hard bop records ever made.
The rhythm section is great too... Winton Kelly pno, Paul Chambers, bss, and Philly Joe Jones on drums. The overal record demonstrates the height of mainstream Bebop recorded at the end of that era. For me the highlight is Johnny Griffin's tenor... he's got an attack that defies description.

HASH(0x9c6696c0) out of 5 stars Typical Terry - Exciting, Inventive and Humorous 20 Dec. 2000
By William Faust - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I should state for the record that I'm much more of a swing fan than a true lover of bebop. But I do harbor enough interest in the works of Dizzy, Fats Navarro and others to keep exploring. And for me Clark Terry represents safe ground because he was born and raised in the big swing bands of Basie, Ellington and Hampton and that upbringing shows through on this 1957 recording for Riverside, his first for the lable. The rhythm section is first rate - Wynton Kelly, Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones. And Johnny Griffin's relaxed tenor is a nice foil to Terry's inventive yet technically supercharged style of improvisation. 8 tracks in all including bop standard Donna Lee and a nice treatment of the ballad Stardust. Recommended to swingers and boppers alike.
HASH(0x9c9477b0) out of 5 stars WHAT A TITLE! 19 Dec. 2012
By Jerlaw - Published on
Format: Audio CD
I've been a Clark Terry fan for many years. They say "you are judged by the company you keep;" Listen to this line-up: Johnny Griffin, tenor sax,Wynton Kelly, drums(he is also better know as a pianist); Paul Chambers, bass & Philly Joe Jones on drums. There's obviously a mistake on the back cover. Wynton Kelly IS playing the piano!

While Terry is the leader of this gig, the other musicians are given a lot of room to stretch out. The interplay between the musicians is great.Point-counterpoint, choice of tempos, great sound,!
you'll recognize some of the tunes on this album. There's "Donna Lee" by Bird; "That old black magic;" "Stardust", a Hoagy Carmichael tune; 8 tunes in all.

I recommend this album to anyone who wants a fine edition to their jazz collection.
