A repost from a few years ago. A significant and historic club date by a Jazz legend, gone way too soon before his time.
Recognized early-on for his considerable talent, 26 year-old Clifford Brown was well on his way to becoming one of leading lights in Jazz when his career was cut short by a tragic car accident in June of 1956. He left behind precious little in the way of studio recordings, but enough to be a heavy influence to many up-and-coming Jazz Trumpeters over the years.
It gives some clue as to what the Jazz world missed.
