Editorial Reviews

Amazon.com

While at the time Clifford Brown was associated with East Coast jazz and the burgeoning hard-bop movement, these 1954 Los Angeles recordings show that he was just as much at home and just as welcome in the midst of the West Coast's cool school. Jack Montrose wrote the arrangements for this septet, and the band is perfectly formed to showcase Brown's brilliant trumpet sound, contrasting it with the lower-pitched but lighter sounds of Zoot Sims's tenor saxophone, Bob Gordon's baritone, and Stu Williamson's valve trombone. Brown's best-known compositions, "Daahoud" and "Joy Spring," are heard in their debut recordings here, and they're well suited to the Montrose treatment, with Brown's scintillating bop lines moving fluidly within the developed ensemble harmony. The other horns have some fine solo moments, but it's Brown who stands out, the precision of his attack highlighting the subtlety and invention of his solos. Pianist Russ Freeman and drummer Shelly Manne contribute tasteful support throughout, and the new remastering by Rudy Van Gelder highlights both the brassy sheen of Brown's playing and the lightly grained reeds. --Stuart Broomer

Format: Audio CD
Nobody since "Fats Navarro" played like that. Clifford Brown was the best and still is in the hard bop culture. We have had a lot of good jazz trumpet players since Brown left the scene in 1956; but nobody, and I mean nobody has been able to bring about the forcefullness, but sweet, and lyrical sounds that was the signature of Clifford Brown. As a young man growing up in Philadelphia, and being surrounded by up and comming musicians, and attempting to play the trumpet myself, I was inspired by Brown, and so was Lee Morgan, another great whose life was cut short in 1972. My collection of Brown probably includes all of his recordings. You could hear the promise in Brown from the earliest of his recordings. He was great with any group that he played with, regardless of the duration; however, he had reached his peak during his tenure with Max Roach. The Max Roach/Clifford Brown Quartette was in a class all of it's own; nobody could touch them. Relative to the review of this album, it's Brown at his best, and if the listener is not familiar with the music of Brown, they are in for a more than pleasant shock.

If you wonder why some people rave about Clifford Brown being equal to (or even better than) Dizzy or Miles, check out, among others, this magnificent album... First of all - It's always exciting to hear the first recording of classic tunes - Brown's "Daahoud" and, one of my all-time-favorite-jazz-tunes ever, "Joy Spring"... Yes, tragically short-lived Clifford Brown was a very talented composer as well!
Brown shines sparkles throughout, playing worm, sonorous, boppish and subtle modern trumpet, aided by more cool-sounding musicians in beautiful arrangements, with the elegant Zoot Sims on tenor-sax, one of those underrated mainstream giants it's always pleasure to hear... Jack Montrose's arrangements are great and all the players sound compact as if they have rehearsed for months before taping this, and yet the music is relaxed as if it was a jam session.

Other tunes are of various quality in themselves ("Gone with the wind" is, no doubt, better material than "Blueberry Hill"), but each track is equally rewarding, in each I found my thrill... I firmly believe this is an album equally suitable for jazz beginners and for jazz-buffs who somehow missed on Clifford Brown. Warm, lovely, essential.

If Clifford Brown had lived to make more recordings, he would be better known today, and this would be at the center of more collections. The solos are great, and the ensemble work is inspired -- the product of arrangements by West Coast jazz arranger Jack Montrose, whose charts set the standard for West Coast jazz. A vintage recording without a "historical" feel to it, completely enjoyable today.
