Clifford Brown

A Jazz trumpet player.

Played hard pop (subtype of Bebop) in the early 50s. Died young in a car crash. Noted for living a 'clean' life – no drugs or alcohol.


  • Lots of fast chord changes
  • Fast tempos
  • Intricate melodies
  • Unusual chords
  • Changes of key

In the 'swing' style, you would get eighth notes alternating short/long, like 'DA da DA da..'. In bebop you get that rapid sharp 'dadadadadada' even length eighth notes (hard to type this!)
