Remembering Clark Terry

Join us for a free, virtual, one-hour concert and conversation with jazz pianist Justin Kauflin and CEO Marc Freedman, in memory of jazz legend and mentor extraordinaire Clark Terry, who would have been 100 this year.

Clark mentored many musicians over his lifetime, including Miles Davis and Quincy Jones. But it was in his 80s — just as he was beginning to lose his eyesight to diabetes — that he was introduced to Justin Kauflin, a blind young pianist 66 years his junior. Together, they forged a life-changing relationship chronicled in the award-winning 2014 documentary, Keep On Keepin’ On — a film Marc considers the greatest intergenerational movie of all time.

Watch the movie (available to stream on Amazon Prime). Then join Marc, Justin and Eunice Nichols ( at 4:30pm PT / 7:30pm ET on February 19 for a special hour of live jazz and inspiring stories of intergenerational creativity and collaboration.

“I call it 'getting on the plateau of positivity!'"
