  Jazz pianist Justin Kauflin attended William Paterson University, where he formed a friendship with his mentor, the late Clark Terry. Justin, who lost his vision at age eleven, connected with the trumpeter, who was dealing with his own vision loss. Their journey together was chronicled in the documentary Keep on Keepin’ On. He went to work with Quincy Jones, and his 2015 album, Dedication, topped the jazz charts. On this episode, which received a 2016 Gabriel Award, Kauflin remembers his mentor with “For Clark.”
