This two-fer combines two of trumpeter/fl?gelhornist Clark Terry's albums for the Impulse! label: 1964's The Happy Horns of Clark Terry and 1967's It's What's Happenin'. Generally considered one of Terry's best '60s outings, The Happy Horns of Clark Terry is a jaunty, swinging affair that finds Terry joined by such names as saxophonists Phil Woods and Ben Webster, bassist Milt Hinton, and others. Featuring a lively take on Duke Ellington's "Rockin' in Rhythm," Bix Beiderbecke's "In a Mist," and even an Ellington medley, the album is a must-hear for Terry fanatics. Interestingly, It's What's Happenin' features Terry playing his horns through the then-innovative electronic hookup the Selmer Varitone attachment. Though the Varitone ultimately failed to catch on, it doesn't detract at all from Terry's inventive, soulful playing. Here we get a take on his classic vocal and trumpet tune "Mumbles" called "Electric Mumbles" as well as a the bluesy "Take Me Back to Elkhart" and more. ~ Matt Collar
