This chapter describes Clark Terry's association with Charlie Barnet and his band in California. While Clark had moved back to St. Louis and started living with Pauline and her family, he was offered the chance to join Charlie Barnet's band in California. This was a huge break for Clark. Charlie was renowned for his work in movies, featurettes, live broadcasts, and he had made dozens of recordings. Clark had heard his recordings, and he liked his sound. He knew this was an offer that he couldn't refuse. His first gig with Charlie was at Jantzen Beach in Portland, Oregon. Clark and Charlie Barnet did several other recordings. They also did live performances in Philadelphia and New York. At this stage in his life, Clark was getting a feeling that a change was coming, and he was ready for it.
