Brown, Clifford - Memorial (Japanese mini-lp sleeve/20 bit K2-encoding mastering)
An unbelievable price on the hard to find Japanese version of this great album!
"Early 50s material recorded by the late Clifford Brown -- issued here in a classic "memorial" package slightly after his death in 1956! And while Brown never recorded much for Prestige -- and never really as a leader -- these sides are still a great example of his completely unique touch on the trumpet! The first half of material was recorded in 1953 -- and features Brown soloing with Tadd Dameron's group on the tracks "Philly JJ", "Chose Now", and "Dial B For Beauty". The other set features Brown and Art Farmer as the lead soloists with the Swedish All Stars, a group led by Quincy Jones -- and tracks on that session include "Stockholm Sweetnin", "Scuse These Blues", and "Lover Come Back To Me".
