Clifford Brown

The Life and Art of the Legendary Jazz Trumpeter

Nick Catalano

Clifford Brown is one of the most important trumpet players in the history of jazz. Although he died at the young age of 25 in 1956, he remains today the greatest influence on trumpet players of the current generation. He was an accomplished virtuoso, the product of a middle-class, cultivated African-American family, and a positive influence, both in life-style and musical style, on jazz.
