Senia Jazz - Tribute to Clifford Brown

Clifford Brown only lived to be 25, but a few short years were enough for him to leave a permanent mark on jazz. As a trumpeter, Brown is the complete package. His clean articulation never wavers, even at high tempo. He can play the lyrical accompanist to love song singers, then turn around and lead his band through a composition of surprising complexity and originality. Although he is no longer alive, his recordings remain a gift to all students of music in general and jazz in particular.

 

Clifford Brown lived only to 25, but a few short years were all he needed to leave a permanent mark on jazz. As a trumpeter, Brown is the complete package. His clean articulation never wavers, even at high speeds. He can play lyrical accompanist to torch singers, then turn around and lead his band through a composition of startling intricacy and originality. Thought he is gone, his recordings remain a gift to every dedicated student of music.
