Show Summary Details


In this chapter, Clark describes his love for the flugelhorn Clark would talk about his love for flugelhorn to his friend, Keith Ecker. During one of such conversations, Clark and Keith came up with the idea for a rehash of an old flugelhorn. Clark was thrilled to see an old flugelhorn revamped into a new one, with the help of Keith Ecker. The flugelhorn was welcomed by Duke Ellington for the band and Duke even wrote a tune entitled “Juniflip on the Flugelhorn.” Eventually, the flugelhorn was developed into a better one by an olds company, which was called the CT model. However, to his great disappointment, Clark found out that the company went kaput. That left Clark with few CT models to hold on to, which he guarded with his life.
