"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?..."
Clifford Brown: The best of the best:

"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."
Brownie on the West Coast

"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."
