Clark Terry - Swahili (1955)
"Swahili" was the debut album released by this great American trumpeter/flugelhornist back in 1955. With all song arranged by Quincy Jones and some of Jazzes best session musicians, Terry laid down an album of 8 cool tunes.
Clark Terry recorded this album along with pianist Horace Silver, drummer Art Blakey, bassists Oscar Pettiford and Wendell Marshall, saxophonist Cecil Payne and trombonist Jimmy Cleveland.
This is a jazz-cool album !
