Gwen Terry

University of California Press

In this chapter, Clark Terry describes his association with Gwen Paris, and his ongoing passion for jazz. It was during the time after watching Clark's first concert that Gwen grew fond of jazz and expressed her wish to learn more about jazz. She even started pushing Clark to write his autobiography. Clark describes Gwen as great help, taking over responsibilities and even taking Clark to the doctor to get his ailments treated. Gwen loved traveling with Clark. Clark performed at various concerts and even universities, and started teaching masters classes. Clark also describes his seventieth birthday bash at the University of New Hampshire, in which great musicians performed a huge jazz show. Clark did various gigs and concerts and performed at several jazz festivals and imparted jazz education at universities. Even with growing health problems and the hectic schedule, jazz remained his only passion.
