Product Description

Product Description

Trumpeter Clifford Brown's star burned brightly but for too short a time - his tragic death at the age of 25 robbed the jazz world of a truly great talent. However, before this he achieved a lot in a short space of time, and most importantly for us here in 2005, he recorded a substantial body of work. With his mercurial tone and fertile imagination, Clifford was able to play everything from the fastest bebop to the most touching ballad with conviction and a seldom heard virtuosity. This 4CD set includes the key recordings of his career, made with the likes of Lou Donaldson, Tadd Dameron, Philly Joe Jones, Quincy Jones and most famously the quintet he co-led with drummer Max Roach. This is one of the first Properbox sets to be issued in new slimline packaging - half the size of the original sets but with all the same great music, comprehensive liner notes and impeccable production quality.

5.0 out of 5 stars Clifford the greatest 18 Nov 2010
Format:Audio CD
My personal all-time favourite jazz trumpeter,this pulls together a lot of bits and pieces (None of the "with strings session though unfortunately)but still it's the Brown-Roach stuff that is la creme de la creme,the Coltrane quartet of the fifties.For a man to have made such an impact by the time of his tragic death at 25 is a remarkable tribute to his outstanding talent,a towering giant of jazz in my view.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful, Joyous Clifford Brown 4 May 2007
By luvinthejazz - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I've had this boxed set for just a couple of weeks now, and I love every song. The sound quality is great throughout, Brown's bebop and hard bop sounds are superb as you'd expect, and the talent that appears along side Clifford Brown is outstanding.

I was a little apprehensive at first to get this set because I was concerned about too much overlap with my Emarcy albums. But it turns out the overlap is minor. This compilation does include the material you'd find on "Clifford Brown and Max Roach", and on "Brown and Roach, Inc.". But it does not contain songs from "Study in Brown", or any of Brown's work with Sonny Rollins or with strings, because they were yet within the 50-year copyright envelope when this set was compiled in 2005.

What you do get are three discs of Clifford's early work leading up to the Brown/Roach Quintet, and disc four, which includes studio and live recordings of the Brown/Roach Quintet.

Disc one contains Brown's work in the groups led by Lou Donaldson, Tad Dameron, and J.J. Johnson through June 1953. These songs show an already mature sound to Clifford Brown's playing. The sound quality is great, and I really like the blend of Brown's trumpet and Johnson's trombone.

Discs two and three focus on the fall of 1953 when Brown was touring through Europe as part of the Lionel Hampton Orchestra. Apparently there was a bit of a riff between the old swing players in the Hampton band and the younger beboppers, which included Brown, alto saxophonist Gigi Gryce, drummer Alan Dawson, trumpeter Art Farmer, trumpeter/arranger Quincy Jones. The younger guys were frustrated at getting little to no soloing time during the performances. While in Paris, apparently the young guys would slip out of the hotel, get to a recording studio, and record songs they wanted to play along with some locals. Hampton was not at all happy about this practice.

The results are wonderful songs with that warm, joyous, energetic sound that Clifford Brown is known for. The songs that are arranged by Quincy Jones sound so beautiful and come off so well, it is hard to believe they were recorded on the sly. I was also very impressed with Gigi Gryce's sound on the alto and his arranging skill.

The end of disc three and disc four contain songs from the Brown/Roach quintet, starting with a live-radio performance, emceed by Max Roach, of the early quintet that included George Bledsoe on bass, Carl Perkins on piano, and Teddy Edwards on tenor. These guys were replaced by George Morrow, Richie Powell, and Harold Land, whom we hear on disc four doing their famous studio recordings for Emarcy, and a live performance. The live performances provide extended soloing time, and Parisian Thoroughfare is just magnificent, smoking fast in the intro and coda.

4.0 out of 5 stars Classic Brownie, Some Rare 2 Sep 2005
By J. Young - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Clifford Brown was amazing from the start, and this set, which includes lots of Paris sessions that may be hard to find, proves it. Even if you have Brown-Roach and other Mercury-Emarcy sessions, these will be well worth it, especially at the price.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Welcome ADDITION to your Clifford Brown collection. 17 Feb 2007
By Tony NYC - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
I really like this collection. I don't like it as much as the "Complete Blue Note-Pacific Jazz" and the "Brownie: The Complete Emarcy Recordings of Clifford Brown" collections. It would certainly be a welcome addition to your Clifford Brown collection if you already have the two sets that I mentioned, but I wouldn't recommend it as your first Clifford Brown set, or especially if it were going to be your only purchase of Clifford Brown recordings. I do enjoy this set very very much though. A shame that his career was so short and that it ended so tragically.

5.0 out of 5 stars Maybe his best 12 July 2011
By Jerlaw - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
"Brownie," was an influential and highly rated American jazz trumpeter. He died aged 25, leaving behind only four years' worth of recordings. Nonetheless, he had a considerable influence on later jazz trumpet players, including Donald Byrd, Lee Morgan, Booker Little, Freddie Hubbard, Valery Ponomarev, Art Farmer, Arturo Sandoval, etc.

Unlike many bebop musicians at that time, Clifford did not feel he had to use heroin to play like Charlie Parker. He died tragically in an auto accident. He was not even driving.

Amazon has samples of the tunes for you to hear so there's no need my listing them. The first tune is called "Sweet Clifford", Now you might expect by the title for this to be a ballad, but it's not. It was written by Clifford, & taken at the breakneck speed that seems impossible on Trumpet. Also notable is the Drum solo by his ever-present partner Max Roach. Brown also wrote "Joy Spring" a gorgeous tune, & "Daahoud". Among Cliffords' favorite jazz tunes was "Jordu" written by Duke Jordan, but made famous in bebop circles by Clifford himself.

To be honest, I cannot imagine a jazz album better than this. There is no "best" in jazz. Each musician, like myself, has his or her own voice & sound. Can you imagine Stan Getz performing on a CD & not knowing it was him?
The same goes for the great Charlie Parker, & Dexter Gordon, etc.

I uge you to buy this CD. Amazon is selling it new for $5.00 & change. Without it, your jazz collection is not complete.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thirteen of the best from the Brown/Roach Quintet 22 April 2008
By Movieman - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This disc gives fans a definitive collection of some of the best works of "Brownie" and the 1954 quintet including his compositions 'Daahoud', 'Joy Spring', 'Jordu' and 'Sweet Clifford'. Other
stand out tracks are the inventive 'Parisian Thoroughfare' and the lovely 'I Don't Stand a Ghost Of a Chance With You' on which Clifford shows us his sensitive way with a ballad accompanied by Richie Powell. Other well known tunes 'Stompin At The Savoy', 'I'll String Along With You', 'Darn That Dream' and 'I Get A Kick Out Of You' also get the quintet's special arrangements. Additionally, the disc comes with a cardboard sleeve and a descriptive leaflet with a bio of Clifford Brown and the evolvement of Brown/Roach Incorporated and its other members, Saxophonist Harold Land, Pianist, Richie Powell (brother of the iconic Bud), and bassist George Morrow. Thouroughly recommended.
