Clifford Brown

tr, 1930-1956 US, Wilmington, Delaware
Musician / Composer of Jazz

Clifford Brown (October 30, 1930 – June 26, 1956), aka "Brownie", was an American jazz trumpeter. He died at the age of 25 in a car accident, leaving behind only four years' worth of recordings. Nonetheless, he had a considerable influence on later jazz trumpet players, including Donald Byrd, Lee Morgan, Booker Little, Arturo Sandoval and Freddie Hubbard.[citation needed] He was also a composer of note: two of his compositions, "Joy Spring" and "Daahoud", have become jazz standards.
