Compelling from cover to cover, this is the story of one of the most recorded and beloved jazz trumpeters of all time. With unsparing honesty and a superb eye for detail, Clark Terry, born in 1920, takes us from his impoverished childhood in St. Louis, Missouri, where jazz could be heard everywhere, to the smoke-filled small clubs and carnivals across the Jim Crow South where he got his start, and on to worldwide acclaim. Terry takes us behind the scenes of jazz history as he introduces scores of legendary greats - Ella Fitzgerald, Oscar Peterson, Dizzy Gillespie, Dinah Washington, Doc Severinsen, Ray Charles, Thelonious Monk, Billie Holiday, Sarah Vaughan, Coleman Hawkins, Zoot Sims, and Dianne Reeves, among many others. Terry also reveals much about his own personal life, his experiences with racism, how he helped break the color barrier in 1960 when he joined the Tonight Show band on NBC, and why - at ninety years old - his students from around the world still call and visit him for lessons.

      For other readers who are not familiar with white labeling, basically it is a service that allows designers to use the website building platform (such as Weebly or IM Creator) to serve the designers' customers. The designer can insert his/her own company logo into the drag and drop builder and brand it as his/her own. So the end customers will receive "full" service while the designer will get to build a brand around his/her services.

      Thanks for the review Jeremy. Two questions. 1) Very basic Р re domain names Р I'm not understanding what the "Free Custom Domain" actually refers toЙ So if I want to set up a url with my business name (which seems to be available from searches on a couple of domain name providers) does that mean I can secure that domain name through Squarespace? Or do I have to buy that name through a provider and then transfer it across? and question 2) Squarespace6 vs Squarespace7 Р any comments? Thanks for any assistance.

    Thanks so much for taking the time to get back to me Jeremy. I think I???ll be going with Wix initially, (as you???ve advised I???ve had a play with both and I find Wix more intuitive for me).Great service, great site, thank again.Jeff
