Preview

The Lincoln Inn provided Clark with his first hope of earning some money, once he was back in St. Louis after his association with Turk and his band. It was at the Lincoln Inn that Clark saw Gus Perriman playing the “Coquette,” and he was offered the chance to work with the band. It was also at this time he realized that his sister and brother-in-law had broken up and no longer lived together. However, Sy and Clark's association kept going. Clark Terry describes his experience of performing in the Lincoln Inn, with Gus Perriman, which although was not related to jazz, helped him earn money for himself. Within a few weeks, his tips picked up and the audience started to include more and more jazz lovers. Clark Terry was eventually offered a job with Fate Marable, to which, Gus Perriman gladly agreed.
