Every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday throughout the Spring, the Home Smith Bar at the Old Mill Toronto showcases some of the most important instrumentalists and leading vocalists on today’s jazz scene for your pleasure in the cozy intimacy of one of Toronto’s best-loved lounges.
An undisputed jazz icon, drummer TERRY CLARKE is an Order of Canada member, Juno Award winner, a 25-year veteran of the famed ‘Rob McConnell and The Boss Brass’, and a founding member of The Rob McConnell Tentet.

In 2009, he released his first album as a leader (“It’s About Time” featuring Jim Hall, Greg Osby, Joe Lovano, Phil Dwyer, and Don Thompson) winning a Juno Award the following year for ‘Traditional Jazz Album of the Year’.
This evening’s all-star TERRY CLARKE TRIO features jazz masters TERRY CLARKE on drums, JOHN SHERWOOD on piano, and STEVE WALLACE on bass, entertaining in the up-close-and-personal ambience of The Home Smith Bar.
