Clark Terry Jazz Archive Created

William Paterson University announced the creation of the Clark Terry Jazz Archive on December 8 at an event that featured a special performance by Terry and the William Paterson University Jazz Ensemble under the direction of David Demsey, professor of music and coordinator of jazz studies at William Paterson.

The archive includes original manuscripts and arrangements, recordings, custom instruments created especially for Terry, personal correspondence from other jazz musicians and assorted memorabilia. Terry expressed a desire for the documents to be kept at William Paterson because of the Jazz Studies Program’s outstanding reputation and the University’s commitment to making the archive accessible to jazz students.
