Muze PNote Trumpeter Clifford Brown had a brief career. He started playing jazz in the late '40s but was killed in a car accident in 1956 (along with pianist Richie Powell, younger brother of Bud). In that short time his interest in expanding the bebop medium is apparent on The Definitive Clifford Brown. Several of the legendary hard bop quintet sides he recorded with Max Roach for Emarcy are featured as well as his warm tone mixing beautifully with string arrangements and backing up vocalists Helen Merrill, Dinah Washington, and Sarah Vaughan. The Definitive Clifford Brown is a well rounded introduction providing a glimpse into the full spectrum of a career cut tragically short. ~ Al Campbell
