I'm sitting here in my loft, listening to some prototype speakers that I designed...bookshelfs...but that's not what this post is about.
What started out to be evaluation, has ended with me, with tears in my eyes...as to the beauty of the music I'm hearing...
Clifford Brown...the album is, The Complete Blue Note and Pacific Jazz Recordings.
For those of you who may not be familiar with Clifford Brown...for my taste, he was, no make that, he does embody all that's good about playing the Trumpet.
Beautiful tone, sounds a bit Fluglehornish...(new word)...very deep rich sound...which is, to my way of thinking, pretty much unabashedly emulated by Mr. Chris Botti...same, at least similar tone and phrasing.
The Alto playing on the album, very Cannonball or Charlie Parker like, though not either of them...recording quality remarkable...especially since Clifford, tragically died in 1956...car accident...taking the best, in my opinion stylist on the trumpet, from us forever.
This album is a must for any jazz lover.
People talk about Miles' work on Kinda Blue...for my taste...my taste, mind you...it ain't close. Better stylings....I love it...run, don't walk, to get this album.
You won't be sorry.

Good Listening,
