Clark Terry's Big Bad Band got distribution deals for some of their records. The band was packed with gigs. To manage his schedule, Clark set up an office in Manhattan and hired help. In order to stop losing money, he setup his own publishing business. Plagiarism threatened the band and its gigs and Clark turned no stone unturned to curb it. With Melba Liston and Phil Woods, Clark started Etoile Music Productions and a record company under the same name. Clark describes his ventures as a part of the Etoile Music Productions and the ups and downs of his business. His schedule was getting busier with endorsements, interviews etc. but jazz and the Big Bad Band remained Clark's first love. He even started going to local schools to teach kids about jazz. This experience, as Clark describes, was his introduction to the world of a whole new jazz perpetuation.
