Clark Terry Receives 2010 Recording Academy® Lifetime Achievement Award

I did MUMBLES with Clark Terry back in the 80's with The Eastfield College Jazz Reading Band - he did an inspirational trumpet clinic and a performance with the group. I ended up doing the piece that year with my High School Jazz Orchestra. It's great that the Grammys recognizes his lifetime of achievments!

In a special invitation-only ceremony to be held during GRAMMY Week on Saturday, Jan. 30, 2010, and a formal acknowledgment during the 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards telecast, which will be held at STAPLES Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, Jan. 31, 2010, and broadcast live at 8 p.m. ET/PT on the CBS Television Network, one of Jazz's most beloved citizens, Clark Terry will receive the Lifetime Achievement Award from The Recording Academy®.
