Clark Terry is more than just a jazz legend who mentored Quincy Jones, and who Dizzy Gillespie and Miles Davis thought was the best trumpet player who ever lived. In Alan Hicks’ documentary, Terry becomes something greater than just a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award winner; he becomes an inspiration, a man who could teach us all a thing or two about craft, dedication and dealing with life’s tragedies. The film chronicles how the legendary musician continues to inspire young artists to this day, most notably an incredibly talented blind piano player named Justin Kauflin. It’s a story that should push masters to pass their wisdom on to another generation, and encourage those in need of guidance to find the men or women they want to be and ask them how they got there.
