40. Q

Gwen Terry

University of California Press

After eight years of working with Duke Ellington, Clark Terry had made up his mind to move on. He was offered a position by Quincy Jones as straw boss. Quincy, referred to as Q by Clark, was organizing a dream band for an international show based on a Harold Arlen musical that was slated to debut eventually on Broadway. Duke Ellington expressed his dislike over the idea of Clark leaving the band, and Clark decided to stay for another gig. During Clark's first performance as a part of Q's band, Duke came to encourage him, which made Clark happy. The show on Harold Arlen musical was a big hit. Q conducted majestically and accurately, and he had a suave look. Eventually, the money started thinning but Q did his best to hold things together. Clark left Q's band to join the National Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) in America.
