This chapter describes Clark Terry's journey with Lionel Hampton's, or Hamp as he was fondly called, band and beyond. After playing for Hamp's band, Clark knew that that was what he wanted. It fulfilled his desire of playing for a band as well as gave him good money. The experience was all about play, pack, and travel. After some gigs and a fruitful experience with Hamp, Clark decided to leave George Hudson's band and join Hamp permanently. George Hudson respected his decision to move on and Clark left on good terms with George and his band. It was a huge disappointment for Hamp did not turn up to receive him as a part of his band as was agreed.
