    I love Clark Terry more than words can express. His playing is so unique, and he never fails to impress me when I hear his work. One day I will learn to doodle tongue and then I can start working on his sound.

    I spent the night of my 30th birthday with Clark Terry in a hotel room after a performance with a couple friends. One of the best nights of my life. He had so MANY stories, many from Duke, and I never knew before that Don Byas was such-how should I put it?-an IMPRESSIVE man. As for Manny's discussion about profanity, he may have been disappointed but as courteous and polite as Clark is onstage, he is profane and hilarious offstage. He answered every question I put to him as we emptied a bottle of cognac. I don't remember getting home but I didn't have a car at that time so I know I was safe.
