Recorded by CLIFFORD BROWN & MAX ROACH on CLIFFORD BROWN & MAX ROACH
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. The two compositions we offer, Joy Spring and Daahoud, 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.
1st part: Trumpet, Alto Sax, C treble clef
2nd part: Tenor Sax, Trombone, Alto Sax (Baritone Sax)
Rhythm Section: Piano, Bass, Drums, Guitar

Another standard in the jazz repertoire, this is a classic bebop melody, a lexicon of the jazz vocabulary.
SOLOS: Daahoud is full of unusual key centers and is therefore a very useful tool to encourage the study of less common keys. It forces most players away from cliches in these uncommon keys, encouraging them to rely more on their ears.

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.
