Format: Audio CD
I admit being a jazz fan since about 1960, but was into the mainsteam of Brubeck, Miles, MJQ, Monk and Oscar Peterson. Since I was only 11 years old when Clifford tragically died in 1956, I knew very little about him. I picked up this CD based on what I'd read about him, and was blown away. He was without a doubt one of the greatest trumpeters in history. His technique, imagination and his heartfelt playing can exhilarate and also put a lump in your throat. I've purchased three other CD's of him since then, but this one still remains my favorite. I love Gertrude's Bounce, Joy Spring, Jordu, Cherokee, well actually the sound of his poignant playing insures you that there really is no such thing as a bad Clifford Brown cut. If you're new to jazz or want to get a wonderful example of this great master's work, you can't go wrong with this one. One of my top 10 jazz CD's of all time.

Clifford Brown was a brilliant young trumpeter, a genius many think was on the level of Miles Davis, who tragically died at a young age. Playing here in his mid-twenties between 1954-57, he records with drummer Max Roach, making classic and timeless tracks. You'll find wonderful bonuses like Sonny Rollins on two tracks, Richie Powell, who's Bud's brother, on piano, and even a lush and gorgeous vocal by Helen Merrill on "What's New." This is gorgeous, gorgeous music. Sit and listen to its depth and beauty, or put it on at dinner for a rich and rewarding ambience. Above all, soak up the Gabriel-like beauty of Clifford Brown on his golden horn.

Dear sirs I comment on respect to a player of grand jazz. In Japan, it is difficult to find such a player. It is the music of the old times, but thinks that it is the music that is splendid by the present age. I feel enviable that I was able to hear such a splendid music if born in this time.
Thank you. Yours sincerely,

This is a great compilation of Clifford's works. A good number of the songs are more rarely heard, while some are already established hits from Clifford. He performs with a series of his great groups. "Gertrude's Bounce" is a happy, playful song that sounds kind of like a Christmas song I cannot recall the title of at the moment. The song is bouncy and Clifford solos great, and listen to Sonny Rollins tear through it too with his comical flair. "Stardust" is from the With Strings album and Clifford plays it brilliantly. One of Clifford's best performances ever. "Jordu", from the recording Clifford Brown & Max Roach, is one of pianist Duke Jordan's (of 1947 Charlie Parker Quintet fame) few major compositions in the jazz world. Clifford, Max Roach and company play it with great swing and laid-back style. Harold Land sounds great on tenor saxophone and Max rips it on his drum solo. "Cherokee" is a major Clifford release from the Study In Brown album, and everyone swings on it effortlessly even with the whirlwind tempo. "What's New" is delivered in two formats, Helen Merrill's under-rated vocal version and Clifford's string version. Both are amazing, and the former is an arrangement by Quincy Jones. Clifford solos brilliantly on both. "Flossie Lou" is a previously unreleased take of a Tadd Dameron tune with Richie Powell and Max showing excellent support. The tune is playful and very swift. "Stompin' At The Savoy", a classic Benny Goodman tune, is extremely fun and Clifford and company put some great licks in here. "It Might As Well Be Spring" shows Clifford performing from a less heard session with Dinah Washington, Maynard Ferguson and Clark Terry. This ballad performance is simply amazing.Read more ›

Max Roach& Clifford Brown - this colloboration may have been one of the best in Jazz history. This music is hot. I have never heard a better Max.
Magic.
I wonder what would have happened if Clifford & Max would have had the chance to record some more. They would have set Jazz milestones. Amazing music!!!!
