In 1956 almost 60 years ago one of the greatest jazz trumpeters in history Clifford Brown died in a tragic car accident at 25 years old that shocked the jazz world. Just prior to that fateful event Clifford recorded a historic string album that I wore out when I was a kid. I had my arranger transcribe all the original Neil Hefti arrangements and I revisited this work recording my own solos with Clifford’s spirit as he changed my musical life. I did this all with no music by memory. This album has been submitted in the jazz category for your consideration available on CD Baby and iTunes to listen further. This was a very emotional project for me. Peace.
