Clifford Brown Project
This CD pays tribute to the great trumpet player through striking arrangements of his compositions, unique orchestrations of his solos, and improvised solos by some of Mark Masters' favorite musicians. On this recording, all of the ensemble arrangements were written by Mark Masters except three, which were written by Jack Montrose for the original Pacific Jazz LP from 1954. Clifford Brown's brilliant solos from the original date are played here by a quartet of trumpet players (Marc Lewis, Ron Stout, Kye Palmer and Ron King). The project brings Clifford's music to life!
