This is the closing track on my Clifford Brown tribute I recorded last year. Clifford changed my musical life and In 1961 when I was 13 years old I had my first big jazz gig at the Atlantic City Jazz Festival on the bill with Dinah Washington, Gerry Mulligan , Oscar Peterson and Art Blakey. It was like yesterday standing in the wings waiting to go on to do my set being memorized watching “The Queen” Dinah Washington as she was called. I took the track she recorded in 1957 shortly after Clifford tragically died and asked my arranger to add a chorus for me to play on.
