BOOKClark Terry, Clark: The Autobiography of Clark Terry (University of California, $34.95). A pungent, unusually plain-spoken memoir by the celebrated jazz trumpeter and educator. Though Terry, one of the few remaining musicians to have played with both Count Basie and Duke Ellington, is speaking through a ghostwriter (his second wife), Clark sounds like a real person swapping stories after hours, and the results are hugely readable (TT).
