Luscious Rendition of “I Remember Clifford”
The jazz world was devastated when Clifford Brown died in a late night auto accident in 1956. Only 26 years of age and still growing and maturing as a jazz trumpeter, Brown's death left a huge whole in the jazz world. Benny Golson penned a tribute to Brown, I Remember Clifford," which the New Horizons Jazz Band will cover in its upcoming June 10 gig in Middleton.
Here's a gorgeous rendition of this tender ballad by Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers.
