Compelling from cover to cover, this is the story of one of the most recorded and beloved jazz trumpeters of all time. With unsparing honesty and a superb eye for detail, Clark Terry, born in 1920, takes us from his impoverished childhood in St. Louis, Missouri, where jazz could be heard everywhere, to the smoke-filled small clubs and carnivals across the Jim Crow South where he got his start, and on to worldwide acclaim. Terry takes us behind the scenes of jazz history as he introduces scores of legendary greats-Ella Fitzgerald, Oscar Peterson, Dizzy Gillespie, Dinah Washington, Doc Severinsen, Ray Charles, Thelonious Monk, Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, Coleman Hawkins, Zoot Sims, and Dianne Reeves, among many others. Terry also reveals much about his own personal life, his experiences with racism, how he helped break the color barrier in 1960 when he joined the Tonight Show band on NBC, and why-at ninety years old-his students from around the world still call and visit him for lessons.

Clark

Obviously we mustn’t judge; but just from his photo you can tell he’s a good sport. As Quincy Jones has it, in the preface, at ninety years old, having spent twenty years writing this book with his wife Gwen, he’s ‘still making dreams come true for young hopefuls who want to learn from a true master.’ And in his opening chapter, named ‘Big Dreams’ he admits that he ‘made [his] first trumpet with scraps from a junkyard.’ The scene is set and those twenty years were worth the wait.
