Clark Terry’s illustrious career—as an innovative trumpeter and flugelhornist, horn designer, leading jazz educator, and composer—has covered an epic span of jazz history. Winner of the 2010 Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award and an NEA Jazz Master, in addition to many other accolades and awards, Terry is the author of Let’s Talk Trumpet: From Legit to Jazz and The Interpretation of the Jazz Language, both with Phil Rizzo.
“Terry’s wonderful book is a true labor of love.” - Peter Vacher, Jazzwise
“‘Clark’ chronicles, in endearing prose, Terry's personal and professional journey. . . . Onstage and in the backroom, Terry and his trumpet shared a front-row seat to jazz history. "Clark" is nothing short of that remarkable story.” - Alexander Heffner, San Francisco Chronicle
"Informative, detailed, intimate, and throughly absorbing, "Clark" is very strongly recommended." - The Midwest Book Review
