The Jazz World is honoring the life of one of the greats today at the news of the passing of Jazz Trumpter, Educator, Mentor and more, Clark Terry. His wife Gwen Terry made the following announcement on his website on Saturday evening, 

"Our beloved Clark Terry has joined the big band in heaven where he’ll be singing and playing with the angels. He left us peacefully, surrounded by his family, students and friends. Clark has known and played with so many amazing people in his life. He has found great joy in his friendships and his greatest passion was spending time with his students. We will miss him every minute of every day, but he will live on through the beautiful music and positivity that he gave to the world. Clark will live in our hearts forever.

With all my love, Gwen Terry"
