Clark Terry was at the worst of his times during the spring of 1946. It was after a period of hard work and hard times that he got an offer by Lucky Millander to play at the Castle Ballroom. Much to his disappointment, none of Clark's family members came to hear him play. Even though the performance was a hit among the audience, it did not appeal to Clark's heart. Soon after, he was ready to join George Hudson's band for the tour to Illinois. It was the same time when the Metronome magazine carried a full-page chapter on Clark about his career. Happy by all that he had got, Clark wanted jazz to be respected the way classical music was. The gig at the Apollo, for Illinois was a hit among the audience but was dislike by Illinois himself, and that's when Clark learned that it was not easy to impress everyone at the same time.
