What others say....

Firey, Agile and passionate, multi-instrumentalist Clarence Ward III’s heartfelt, soulful music stands as an anchor of the Baltimore music scene. The minute you hear the crisp, agile wail of his trumpet, his playful sincerity of his sax or his warm and powerful flugelhorn you're frozen, mesmerized, until he's said his piece. Clarence doesn’t just play the notes, he lives them, and you are helpless to avoid the way it vibrates through your chest cavity and breaks you open to the world and it’s complexity. He’s a storyteller, a guardian of jazz music today.” - Theresa Sise
