Show Summary Details


It was on February 15, 1970, that Clark Terry's Big Bad Band was to perform at the Carnegie Hall. The show was a hit, the audience gave it a standing ovation and Clark describes his feeling as being overwhelmed. This experience came with its own ups and downs for Clark. There was much money involved in the show. Clark also realized the nuances of the recording business and came to know that trying to get a record company pick an album was an extremely difficult task. Initially feeling low, Clark decided to continue fighting. The bright side was that the band was happy, and they had gotten paid. That standing ovation showed that the audience was happy. So Clark decided to keep stepping.
