Clark : the autobiography of Clark Terry by Clark Terry( )

5 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 1,245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the story of one of the most recorded and beloved jazz trumpeters of all time. With honesty and a superb eye for detail, Clark Terry, born in 1920, takes us from his impoverished childhood in St. Louis, Missouri, where jazz could be heard everywhere, to the smoke-filled small clubs and carnivals across the Jim Crow South where he got his start, and on to worldwide acclaim. Terry takes us behind the scenes of jazz history as he introduces scores of legendary greats--Ella Fitzgerald, Oscar Peterson, Dizzy Gillespie, Dinah Washington, Doc Severinsen, Ray Charles, Thelonious Monk, Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, Coleman Hawkins, Zoot Sims, and Dianne Reeves, among many others. Terry also reveals much about his own personal life, his experiences with racism, how he helped break the color barrier in 1960 when he joined the Tonight Show band on NBC, and why--at ninety years old--his students from around the world still call and visit him for lessons

Letters I never mailed : clues to a life by Alec Wilder( Book )

8 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and Norwegian and held by 214 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Alec Wilder is a rare example of a composer who established a reputation both as a prolific composer of concertos, sonatas, and operas, and as a popular songwriter (including the hit "I'll Be Around"). He was fearsomely articulate and had a wide and varied circle of friends ranging from Graham Greene to Frank Sinatra and Stan Getz. Letters I Never Mailed, hailed at its first publication (in 1975, by Little, Brown), tells the story of Wilder's musical and personal life through unsent "letters" addressed to various friends." "In it, he shares his insights - and sometimes salty opinions - on composing, musical life, and the tension between art and commercialism. This new, scholarly edition leaves Wilder's original text intact but decodes the mysteries of the original through an annotated index that identifies the letters' addressees, a biographical essay by David Demsey, and photographs by renowned photographer, and Wilder's lifelong friend, Louis Ouzer."--Jacket
