Iconic Canadian drummer Terry Clarke's illustrious career spans nearly five decades. Playing drums since the age of 12, the musicians kick-started his career with the John Handy Quintet in San Francisco in 1965, alongside bassist Don Thompson and others, and appeared on Live at Monterey Jazz Fest (1966). From 1965-69, Clarke joined legendary vocal soul/pop group The Fifth Dimension, before relocating in Toronto, where he established himself as a studio musician. With over 300 recordings to his credit, Terry Clarke has worked with Oscar Peterson, Jim Hall, Freddie Hubbard and countless others. His debut solo album, the award-winning and aptly named It's About Time, was released in 2009, featuring Terry Clarke Trio members Don Thompson on bass, and Phil Dwyer on saxophone.
