One thought on “Clifford Brown LIVES!”

  1. Very insightful show, and so well done – by both of you! I just had Charlie as a guest at the University of Denver, where I teach, and he is such an inspiring instructor as well as a stellar player! We shared some “Clifford” moments then too, as Brownie has been a passion of mine ever since I was in high school! Thanks for the snapshot, and for giving the new listeners such a good grounding!
