Clark, I loved talking with you last night and hearing you chat away just like old times! And, wow… cool to once again hear you buzzing your lips like nobody’s buzziness! How you can so perfectly buzz nearly four octaves is beyond me. But, then again, you’re beyond EVERYBODY! So, keep on keepin’ on and gettin’ better & better every day, and just know that I’m looking forward to sharing warm toast & corny jokes with you sooner than soon!

Sending you smiles and much love,


CLARK, just saying hey. sending you some good vibes. I’m halfway through your book….can’t put it down but i have to so i can practice!
as always..thanks for teaching me to circular breathe in the airport!

How happy I was to spend time with Clark and to hear him greet me as he always does…Lesa, Lesa, Go Geesa…! With courage, heart, and determination, Clark continues to show us all how to “keep on keepin’ on!”

Loving you, and praying for healing!

Thanks for the inspiration! I went to your jazz camp in Iowa in middle and high school and you inspired me to be an educator. I now teach middle school band and jazz band in California. I pass on the love of music you helped inspire. I use some of the improv ideas you showed me in middle school to help my students learn to solo, and I think of you saying it to me every time I do it. I remember asking you for an autograph after a concert as an 8th grader and you talked to me for about 10min. You have no idea how important that was to me, that you would take your time to talk to a kid. I am and always will be a Clark Terry Fan! Your music and personality continue to inspire me. I can’t wait to read the book! Thank you so much.

Hey Clark,

My name is Zach Ramacier and I am a good friend of Josh Shpak and Michael Miller. I just wanted to say my thoughts are with you and that I hope you’re doing alright. You will always be one of my favorite trumpet players and I know you’ll pull through this!


I was fortunate enough to play in a concert with you at Bluefield State Collge in 1974. You called me the “squeeler” because I was able to hit a triple high C! I’ll always treasure that night.
Paul Nester

Thoughts and prayers of positivity for you. Thanks for your contributions to life’s soundtrack and collection of bright lights

Hey CT!!!

I’m glad to see you’re still hanging on in there. I just wanted to remind you that my mom and I are sending up prayers for you every chance we get. You’re doing good and looking in tip-top shape!

I’m glad to hear that you’ll be transitioning soon so you can come back home. And don’t forget, God is in control. With that said, I know and see with my own eyes that you’re going to be alright.

By the way, I’m loving the book! I want to thank you and Gwen for allowing me to learn more about your life through this autobiography. Keep On Keepin’ On!!!

Needless to say, we are looking forward to seeing you soon, and we love you more than ten thousand pieces of warm toast!!!

Sending big hugs and much love,

Dear Clark, this is your friendly figure skater talking. There is not a day that goes by that I don’t think of you.
My thoughts and prayers go out to you and Gwen.
“Keep on keepin’ on.”
Will be at the Blue Note on Tuesday in celebration of Jimmy Heath’s 85th.
You and the family of jazz is what keeps me alive.
Thank you.

Dear Clark,
We met once briefly during the period in the 80s right after I released an album on Concord with Stan Getz. I have been a big fan of yours since then.

Sending you healing thoughts, and keeping you in my prayers for a return to great health.

Warm regards,
Dee Bell

Hey Clark, we met the first time at the Don Jacoby tribute. Mike Vax traveled with you to Arlington, Texas for that event. Mike and I go back to 1972. Sorry to hear that you are not well, but you are in the great state of Arkansas, where the folks are real and take good care of you. You get well, now, and get back on the horns. You have more licks to blow. Blessings to you and your family.
