DePaul University Big Band Reviews:

“Recorded during the mid-’90s, The Chicago Sessions features legendary trumpeter Clark Terry performing with the Depaul University Big Band under the direction of trumpeter Bob Lark. Compiled out of two hard–to-find recordings, this is ’50s and ’60s style big-band bop that should appeal to fans of straight-ahead jazz. Terry sounds in fine form throughout and it is a joy to hear him showcased within such a large and crisply swinging ensemble.” —Matt Collar, AllMusic
