"Terry Townson is quite frankly one of the finest Trumpet player/arrangers that I have had the pleasure of working with both in and out of the studio! His music and attitude are always coming from the highest degree of integrity possible. I look for suitable projects just so that I can hire Terry."
Mose Allison, Dave Brubeck, Chet Baker, Dan Brubeck Quartet. Three Juno awards
"Terry has done some amazing work for me. The guy's got credentials a mile long and is a completely flexible and soulful player. I met Terry by playing and recording with him in the Colin James Band. His intuition and sense of taste led me to ask for horn and string arrangements whenever I needed them. It doesn't matter what the project is...R&B, rock, retro country swing...he has such a great grasp of classic influences and great chops to boot."
Odds, Colin James, Strippers Union, Film & TV composer
"What would my music have been without Terry. We shared countless wonderful evenings together on our corner of Delbert McClinton's stage all across the country. He was a rock there. His solos, beautiful statements. He is a world class musician with a southern gospel root. His arrangements and artistry grace my albums. The horn section in my band in Virginia, The Mystic Soul Bubbas, play his arrangements at our performances. His friendship is a blessing to me now as it has been through some life together. Terry is a Mystic Soul Bubba."
"I had the good fortune to meet Terry Townson a couple of years ago in Vancouver. It was not long after Terry had relocated with his wife Val from Nashville. Terry was a very nice unassuming guy who said very little about himself and his impressive background as a Trumpet player, arranger and session player.
He was eager to sit in and get to know the scene and players in Vancouver. It did not take long to see that the music community in Vancouver had just been enhanced by this incredible players relocation to our city. Terry played with my Band the Kingpins on several occasions at Vancouver's premier Blues and R&B Room the Yale. As well we were fortunate to experience his talents in the studio as he also played on our second CD "This Road". I would recommend Terry as a musician to anyone who was looking for the best and even more importantly I would recommend him as a friend and all round great guy."
