This version of Brown's bebop classic will push the horns' technique and collective time feel. The intro explores the challenging first phrase of the melody in several keys before settling into the statement of the head. The trumpet carries the melody and the only accompaniment is a rhythmic background texture created by the other horns. The rhythm section eventually enters, but only with a figure that goes against the rhythmic tide, increasing the responsibility of the horn players to hold things together.
SOLOS: This is another set of classic bebop changes that goes to some uncommon keys and will be valuable to anyone who really wants to master playing over bebop harmonies. Also see the quintet chart (Clifford's own arrangement).
* Jazz Repertory Transcription Series includes chord voicings, bass lines, drum fills and cued melody lines in rhythm section parts.
CLIFFORD BROWN (1930-1956). Although his tragically short career ended in a car crash at age 25, Brownie, a member of Downbeat's Hall of Fame, is considered one of the greatest jazz trumpeters and composers of all time. With exceptional technique and tone and an ability to play deeply moving ballads, he has influenced every major trumpet player since. He is most famous for his collaborations with Max Roach and his recordings have been reissued on Blue Note and Verve boxed sets. His many compositions, including the standards "Joy Spring" and "Daahoud," have been recorded by Dizzy Gillespie, Oscar Peterson, Sarah Vaughn, Stan Getz, Helen Merrill, George Shearing, Freddie Hubbard, Ahmad Jamal, Arturo Sandoval, Wes Montgomery, McCoy Tyner and many, many others.
