Keep On Keepin’ On (KOKO) is an award-winning documentary that tells the incredible story of music legend Clark Terry, his beginnings as a trumpeter and pioneer in early American Jazz, and his mentorship of Justin Kauflin, a young blind pianist. One of Terry’s greatest passions was mentoring students; his first being Quincy Jones at age 12, bookended by one of his last, Justin Kauflin at age 17.

In honor of Clark’s memory, Quincy Jones (producer of Keep On Keepin’ On) has granted free digital downloads of the film. Through this outreach program, Quincy’s goal is to preserve Cee Tee’s message and legacy, as well as inspire young musicians and teachers alike.

“If you think you’re having a rough day or can’t escape from whatever hole life has dug for you, Kauflin’s worldview should give you a little perspective…Kauflin and Terry make a fascinating pair…These two men, 70 years apart, inspired each other, and that inspiration can be infectious”
