While Clifford Brown was associated with East Coast jazz and the burgeoning hard bop movement, the 1954 Los Angeles recordings on Jazz Immortal show that he was just as much at home and just aswelcome in the midst of the West Coast's cool school. Jack Montrose wrote the arrangements for the septet, and the band is perfectly formed to showcase Brown's brilliant trumpet sound, contrasting it with the lower-pitched but lighter sounds of Zoot Sims's tenor saxophone, Bob Gordon's baritone, and Stu Williamson's valve trombone. Brown's best known compositions, "Daahoud" and "Joy Spring", are heard in their debut recordings here, and they're well suited to the Montrose treatment, Brown's scintillating bop lines moving fluidly within the developed ensemble harmony. The other horns have some fine solo moments, but it's Brown who stands out, the precision of his attack highlighting the subtlety and invention of his solos. Pianist Russ Freeman and drummer Shelly Manne contribute tasteful support throughout and the new remastering by Rudy Van Gelder highlights the brassy sheen of Brown's playing and the lightly grained reeds. --Stuart Broomer

5.0 out of 5 stars IMMORTAL JAZZ 21 April 2009
Format:Audio CD
If you wonder why some people rave about Clifford Brown being equal to (or even better than) Dizzy or Miles, check out, among others, this magnificent album... First of all - It's always exciting to hear the first recording of classic tunes - Brown's "Daahoud" and, one of my all-time-favorite-jazz-tunes ever, "Joy Spring"... Yes, tragically short-lived Clifford Brown was a very talented composer as well!
Brown sparkles throughout, playing worm, sonorous, boppish and subtle modern trumpet, aided by more cool-sounding musicians in beautiful arrangements, with the elegant Zoot Sims on tenor-sax, one of those underrated mainstream giants it's always pleasure to hear... Jack Montrose's arrangements are great and all the players sound compact as if they have rehearsed for months before taping this, and yet the music is relaxed as if it was a jam session.

Other tunes are of various quality in themselves ("Gone with the wind" is, no doubt, better material than "Blueberry Hill"), but each track is equally rewarding, in each I found my thrill... I firmly believe this is an album equally suitable for jazz beginners and for jazz-buffs who somehow missed on Clifford Brown. Warm, lovely, essential.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clifford Brown: The best of the best: 7 July 2002
By christopher p. maghee - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Nobody since "Fats Navarro" played like that. Clifford Brown was the best and still is in the hard bop culture. We have had a lot of good jazz trumpet players since Brown left the scene in 1956; but nobody, and I mean nobody has been able to bring about the forcefullness, but sweet, and lyrical sounds that was the signature of Clifford Brown. As a young man growing up in Philadelphia, and being surrounded by up and comming musicians, and attempting to play the trumpet myself, I was inspired by Brown, and so was Lee Morgan, another great whose life was cut short in 1972. My collection of Brown probably includes all of his recordings. You could hear the promise in Brown from the earliest of his recordings. He was great with any group that he played with, regardless of the duration; however, he had reached his peak during his tenure with Max Roach. The Max Roach/Clifford Brown Quartette was in a class all of it's own; nobody could touch them. Relative to the review of this album, it's Brown at his best, and if the listener is not familiar with the music of Brown, they are in for a more than pleasant shock.

5.0 out of 5 stars Joy Spring 9 Feb 2008
By Richard Wirtz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If Clifford Brown had lived to make more recordings, he would be better known today, and this would be at the center of more collections. The solos are great, and the ensemble work is inspired -- the product of arrangements by West Coast jazz arranger Jack Montrose, whose charts set the standard for West Coast jazz. A vintage recording without a "historical" feel to it, completely enjoyable today.

5.0 out of 5 stars MILES WHO? THE MAN WHO WOULD HAVE BEEN GOD... 6 Aug 2001
By mason williams - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Sadly Clifford died in his mid-20's around 1956. If he had'nt the world of jazz would be a little different. He definately would have stolen a spotlight or two. From backing up Dinah Washington & Hellen Merrill, through exotica, hard-bop, cool and beatnik stylings Clifford did it all, and did it all perfectly! Cliffords music was always fun, finger snapping, mind-blowing fun. The flip side of the Coltranes and Ornettes of the jazz world. This cd is no exception. You almost expect Kerouac to pipe in at any minute! yeah baby, that's HIP! The real-deal take to your grave collection to get is BROWNIE (the 10 cd motherload) but if you don't have an extra $150.00 burning a hole in your pocket then get this! 36 minutes of pure modern art. Music to send you spiriling into a rabid Clifford addiction. The remastering sounds very crisp as well. well, whaddaya waiting for?...

5.0 out of 5 stars Brownie on the West Coast 6 April 2005
By Bomojaz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
It was in 1954 while in Los Angeles that Clifford Brown and Max Roach finalized the personnel for their famous quartet, getting Harold Land for the tenor chair and Richie Powell for piano. Meanwhile Brownie made this date for Pacific Jazz in July and August. West Coasters Stu Williamson, Bob Gordon, Russ Freeman, Joe Mondragon, and Shelly Manne were on the date, and Zoot Sims, free-lancing in LA at the time, played tenor. Brownie is in good form. He would play more inspired trumpet with Max later on, but these sides are excellent. Some tunes (Dahoud" and "Joy Spring") received their first airing on this date, and it's interesting to compare them with the later EmArcy recordings. Recommended.
