Elle participe donc à l'orchestre qui ouvre ce sujet sur les femmes instrumentistes de jazz

[center]“Nobody ever told me,[i] ‘You can’t play the trumpet, you’re a girl.’ [/i]Not when I got started in high school and not when I came out to L.A. My father told me, [i]‘It’s going to be a challenge, but if you’re going to do it, I’m behind you all the way.’[/i] And he was."[/center]

Elle accompagne Billie Holiday, Josephine Baker, le chanteur Bill Williams... Elle ne semble pas avoir beaucoup enregistré. De sa prestation avec Charlie Parker, rien sauf erreur. Mais quelle trompettiste ! Une suprême élégance mélodique, un son doux et plein, proche de Roy Eldridge et Dizzy en moins brillant moins véloce, une drive infaillible... [Parler de swing est interdit sur ce forum].

[center]« They were trying to get Charlie [Parker] to play at the club next door, the Lighthouse, but no one could get him to sit in. Then he came over to where I was playing, borrowed a new Selmer tenor from somebody, and said, [i]‘Well, what do you want to play Clora?’ [/i]And I said, [i]‘Now’s the Time.’[/i] So I set the tempo like [she beats off a fast tempo] and everybody got really swinging.

“When we finished it, the piano player played the old Basie lick on the end. So Charlie said, [i]‘Hey, how about some ‘Tickle Toes’? I said, ‘Yeah, ‘Tickle Toes!?’[/i] And Charlie counted it off like [beats off a much faster tempo], and he was flying. So when I started playing, I tried to double up the tempo like he was doing. And when we finished, he grabbed me by the arm and dragged me in the back. [i]‘Clora,’ he said. ‘You know I love you and I love the way you play. But don’t try to double up like that when you can’t do it!’ [/i]And then he gave me a big fat hug.

“But I never tried it anymore. That was my lesson right there. Stick to what you can do. And know what you can do.”»[/center]
