EmArcy: 814 645-2 / Recorded August 6, 1954
CLIFFORD BROWN was one of the most influential and inspiring trumpet players in the history of modern jazz. He is most well-known for the 1950s quintet he co-led with drummer Max Roach. Daahoud and Joy Spring, both recorded with that group, have become jazz standards and contain many of the harmonic concepts of modern jazz composition. For a different treatment of these great titles, see the septet arrangements by Jack Montrose.
Front Line: B-flat, E-flat, C treble clef, C bass clef
Rhythm Section: Piano, Bass, Drums, Guitar

This arrangement, complete with the famous rhythm section intro, presents a straightforward approach to a classic jazz composition. The melody, which is played in unison by the two horns, is full of exciting and unusual rhythmic and harmonic material that is important for every jazz player to know. In addition, the composition's structure, in which the first A section is repeated a half step up, encourages players to become accustomed to playing in less common keys.
SOLOS: The changes are full of II-Vs and modulate from F to G-flat to G and back to F, covering a lot of harmonic ground in a single 32-bar form.
